We have experienced Support Workers with wide ranging experiences such as Social Work, Occupational Therapy and Child, Young Person and Family Support.
A committed and experienced group of Trustees work with us providing our strategic direction.
We are contracted by Cumberland & Westmorland & Furness Councils to undertake Carers Assessments and develop Support Plans. We also, through our own fundraising activities deliver activities, trips and other support for Young, Adult and Parent Carers.
A Carers Assessment provides Carers with an opportunity to identify what could help them with their caring role. All Carers; Young and Adult, in the UK have a legal right to a Carers Assessment. All professionals working with Carers have a statutory obligation to ensure that Carers are given this opportunity.
We provide information and advice to Carers and have a volunteer programme through which we can provide IT support, Sitting Service, Craft groups, lunch and coffee hubs; at which Carers meet regularly for mutual support. Young Carers can participate in school holiday trips and activities as well as receiving 1:1 support.
Carer Support Carlisle & Eden will ensure that our services meet our clients expectations, our own high standards and comply with all relevant regulations. We aim to provide the highest possible levels of customer satisfaction.
Specific quality objectives will be set and reviewed through our business planning, management meetings and management review processes. To help achieve these, we will maintain a quality system that meets BS EN ISO 9001:2015 - Quality Management Systems – Requirements.
We must strive to improve continually our performance by regularly evaluating our services and identifying actions to ensure that our objectives are achieved and that problems are prevented.
