Leicestershire County Council is committed to listening to and working with carers who are taking on a valuable caring role.
This form is for all carers of adults aged 18 and over, living in Leicestershire and gives the opportunity to think about what care they are providing and what they may need to help them in their caring role.
It can be completed by Carers themselves and/or on behalf of Carers with their knowledge. Carers may require help, perhaps from a friend, family member or an independent advocate to complete this Form. [Carers may contact their local Carers' Centre for advice on how to access an advocate].
When completed and returned, carers will be notified of what support may be offered to help with the caring role. This could include advice and information and/or a change to the way support services are currently provided and/or different types of support/services or, the option of a personal budget.
Carers will be helped to develop a Support plan (guidance on support planning is available) after which arrangements will be made to get the support needed to help the carer to continue caring. If you are caring for more than one person please complete a separate Form for each person.
