Prevention with Carers

There are currently around 5,430,016 carers in England, with the economic contribution made by carers in the UK being valued at £132bn a year. Carers are often key to people being able to maintain their independence and stay living at home or within their family, however the role of a carer can have impact on a person’s employment, their personal finances, their social life, their relationships and their mental and physical wellbeing.

Prevention services for carers are aimed at supporting people to continue this role whilst also supporting them to be able to access other activities outside of their caring role. Support may involve:

Making choices, being informed

Promoting independence and wellbeing

Connecting individuals and communities
