Who are we?

The Carers Trust, formally known as The Princess Royal Trust for Carers has 144 centres across Britain supporting unpaid carers. Solihull Carers Centre has been established for 10 years. We are Solihull’s lead organisation for carers and we have an extensive range of services to help support carers of all ages.

 
What do we do?

Solihull Carers Centre provides emotional support, information and advice and assistance to those providing unpaid care. This could be for a relative, friend or other person who has a disability, is frail or has a long term illness. We support all age groups;

 

  • Young Carers, aged 5 – 18 years

 

  • Young Adult Carers, aged 18 – 24 years

 

  • Adult Carers, aged 25 and over

 

All our services are confidential.

 

We work towards increasing awareness of the role played by carers looking after others in the community, along with recognition of the expertise carers have to offer and the valuable contribution they make to society.

 

Our Young Carers Team offers day trips out, mini holidays, weekend and school holiday activities and monthly club sessions. As well as all this we offer one to one support, advice, help to find other services that can support young carers and we can speak to people on your behalf or help you with what you want to say. For more information about what Young Carers click here.

 

The Young Adult Carers Team is a new service which offers activities, training, advice and guidance to Young Adult Carers aged 18-25 years. We provide free and confidential information, advice and guidance, as well as holding one to one and group support sessions. We aim to help carers identify and access their future goals and aspirations, encouraging independence and decreasing isolation. To find out more about Young Adult Carers click here.

 

Our Adult Carers Team offers a telephone support line which includes emotional support, advice and information and signposting to additional organisations. We support carers caring for people with a range of health issues and we have support workers focussed on learning disabilities and special educational needs. We also carry out carers assessments and reviews. Face to face support can be arranged and we hold drop in sessions and carers support groups throughout the borough. As well as this we offer events and activities and carers views meetings. Once registered, carers will also receive a carers identification card. For more information about the Adult Carers team click here.
