Changes to Carers Services in Lancashire

Changes are being made to Adult Carers Services commissioned by Lancashire County Council and Lancashire Clinical Commissioning Groups. Previously these Carers Services were delivered under the umbrella name Carers Lancashire and provided by n-compass Northwest and Carers Link Lancashire.

A new Carers Service has launched named The Lancashire Carers Service and will be delivered in partnership, n-compass Northwest delivering in North and Central Lancashire and Carers Link Lancashire delivering in East Lancashire.
 
The new Lancashire Carers Service will continue to support Carers by Statutory Carers Assessments, Peace of Mind 4 Carers Plans and a range of wrap around support to enable Carers to take a break from their caring role.

Other support also includes:

  • Specialist 1-2-1 and group support
  • Magazines twice a year detailing local groups, activities and courses
  • Support to access community and Health and Wellbeing services
  • A 24/7 Volunteer manned Carers Help and Talk (CHAT) Line
  • Volunteer Befriending and Sitting-In services
  • Support for former Carers
  • Volunteering opportunities for Carers, including volunteering for the CHAT Line, Befriending and Sitting-In services

 
The Lancashire Carers Service works across the county providing support and information to adult Carers (18+).
