As the nation proceeds through the fifth week of lockdown, more stories around how some organisations supporting people on the front line are streaming in. Derbyshire Carers Association are one such organisation who have continued to provide vital support for unpaid carers across the region.
The association has teams that are contacting Derbyshire’s most vulnerable unpaid carers to review their current situation, address any concerns and ensure that carers and their families are connected to support services. These include vital services such as food deliveries, prescription collections and befriending.
Derbyshire Carers Association created emergency plans for individual carers and addressed their concerns. Carers requiring any further support have been contacted regularly throughout this crisis so that no carer feels alone.
A Spokesperson for Derbyshire Carers Association, Said: “We are so proud of our staff and their continued dedication to supporting carers in our local communities.
“Our teams are working tirelessly to ensure we reach out to the thousands of unpaid carers who are struggling to deal with the impact the current crisis is having on both them and their loved ones”
