Information and Support for Professionals
To compliment our work directly with carers, Carers Wakefield & District endeavor to work together with professionals not only from the health and social care sectors, but also from other voluntary sector agencies, and from other related areas such as benefits, housing and disability rights.
We are very aware of the need to raise and maintain awareness of carers’ issues amongst professionals and we welcome enquiries from anyone who is seeking advice and support in their work with carers.
Staff and volunteers will happily bring our information display to any events organised by other professional and voluntary organisations which help raise awareness of the work that we do, and of carers’ issues generally.
In many cases it is an individual’s GP who first becomes aware of their caring responsibilities. Consequently we have introduced an established protocol to assist surgery and medical centre staff in making referrals to us.
