It could be that you are in need of the following:

  • Advice on how to navigate the local health and social care systems
  • Information and signposting to more specific services, e.g. support groups
  • Supported referrals to other organisations, e.g. Suffolk County Council, St. Nicholas Hospice
  • Direct referral to our in-house counselling service
  • A listening ear and emotional support
  • Our trained Carer Advisers can provide all of the above and more; this list is by no means exhaustive!

Professional Referrals

We welcome referrals from any professional who feels a carer they know would benefit from our service. Some of the organisations who refer to us include St Nicholas Hospice Care, Steel Bones, NSFT Autism Diagnostic Service and PACT (Parents and Carers of Children and Young People with Mental Health).

All we ask is that permission has been given from the carer in question before a referral is made to us.

Our fully trained Carer Advisers can offer carers information, advice and guidance including the following:

  • Advice on how to navigate the local health and social care systems
  • Information and signposting to more specific services, e.g. support groups
  • Supported referrals to other organisations, e.g. Suffolk County Council, St. Nicholas Hospice
  • Direct referral to our in-house counselling service

Above all our Carer Advisers can offer emotional support and a non-judgemental listening ear. We aim to enable and empower carers and give them the opportunity to explore the various aspects of their caring role and ensure they are getting all the support they need. Our Carer Advisers are happy to feedback to referrers where requested.

A Carer Adviser will make contact with the carer within five working days of receiving a referral.
