Carers' Emergency Support Service

Provides replacement care when a carer is unavailable for short periods.

The Carers' Emergency Support Service can provide replacement care when a carer is unavailable for short periods.

The person you care for will be looked after in your absence at any time of day or night if there is an emergency in your life.

This includes:

  • a carer's admission to hospital
  • GP or hospital appointments at short notice
  • family emergency or crisis which takes you away from your caring role such as a close relative being taken ill and needing help / support 
  • risk to the carer's employment on a particular occasion
