Service offered: Lanarkshire Carers is a resource for carers across Lanarkshire to access information, advice and a range of direct support services to support them in their caring roles. We work with and for carers to develop and deliver services that make a positive difference in their lives. Lanarkshire Carers is commissioned by Health and Social Care North Lanarkshire and South Lanarkshire Health and Social Care Partnership to provide Adult Carer Support Services. Early Intervention and prevention is key to ensuring carers continue to manage and do not reach crisis point. Lanarkshire Carers empowers carers to sustain their caring role through a self-management approach, by working in partnership with a range of organisations and services that can support them. The support and services that we provide include: Adult Carer Support Plans. Preventative support and future planning using Emergency Planning and Anticipatory Plans. Emotional and Practical Support on a one-to-one basis with the carer using our nationally recognised Personal Outcomes Toolkit. Support to access a Short Break, enabling carers to have a life outside or alongside their caring role and maintain their health and wellbeing so they can continue to provide care. Helping carers to feel confident in their caring role and look after their own Health and Wellbeing through our Carer Training Programme. Our On-Demand Wellbeing Library to give carers a short break away from their caring role and help them cope better with life as a carer. Dedicated support for carers from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) communities including multi-lingual support. Tailored support for Young Adult Carers (aged 18-25). Support when engaging with social work and partner organisations. Carer Legal Clinics where carers can obtain advice on topics such as Guardianship and Power of Attorney with a solicitor. An opportunity for carers to have their voices heard to promote direct involvement and influence improvement in the planning and delivery of health and social care services. A virtual drop in service for carers wishing to access carer support via a video call via the NHS Lanarkshire Near Me platform.
