As part of Carers Week I wanted to share how Gloucestershire Carers Hub continues to support carers and update you on how we have changed some of our services.
Our helpline is open every Tuesday and Thursday from 08:00 until 20:00 for professionals and carers. This number is 0300 111 9000.
Gloucestershire Carers Hub continues to provide information, guidance and support, benefits and financial advice, assistance with contingency planning such as the Carers Emergency Scheme and the completion of statutory carers assessments. We continue to provide the Carers Emergency Scheme during this time, however to make it more user friendly, the forms that require completing can now be filled in over the phone if the carer would prefer, and we have also removed some of the requirements to streamline its process.
