Coventry Carers’ Centre opened in July 1996, as the only ‘one stop’ centre for family carers – people who look after a relative, friend or neighbour who, due to ill health or disability, cannot manage without their help at home. The Centre is open to the public, on a drop-in basis, from 9.30am until 4pm, Monday to Friday. Between 9.30am and 1pm on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, there is a Carer Support Worker available to give in depth advice and support. At other times, our receptionists can give basic information, register new carers and issue Passport to Leisure and Learning (to which all carers registered with the Centre are entitled, regardless of their financial situation). Telephone support is available outside these hours. The Carersline number is 024 7663 3788, and it is available between 8.30am and 4.30pm, Monday to Friday, an answerphone operates outside these times. Outreach drop-in services are available throughout the city – contact the Centre for details. The Carers’ Centre aims to identify family carers within the city, assess their needs and provide information and support to meet their current, and future, needs.
All carers who live, or work, in Coventry, or who care for someone who lives in Coventry.
