    Who we are

    The Carers Centre is a charity formed in 1988 to support the needs of unpaid family/friend carers in Brighton and Hove.

    Since 2018 we have also been the lead partner of a project funded by Brighton and Hove City Council, called the Carers Hub, which provides a single point of contact for carers in the city.

    The Hub comprises four organisations. The Carers Centre, Alzheimer’s Society – helping people with dementia, Crossroads Care, providing short term respite solutions and Brighton and Hove City Council Carer Assessment Workers.

    You are now about to start the first section where we will look at what being a carer means.

    I hope you enjoy the session and wish you all the very best.

    Carers and Primary Care

    Carers form a significant and valuable part of a surgery’s patient list: one in 10 patients

    Relatively few carers are acknowledged until a crisis occurs, consequently a significant strain can be put on GP practice resources

    GPs and their teams are often the frontline professionals with whom carers have regular contact

    What do we mean by the term “Carer”?

    ‘A carer is a person of any age, providing unpaid support to a partner, relative, or friend who could not manage without their help due to their illness, frailty, disability, a mental health problem, or an addiction’

    ‘What being a carer means and what the role entails can vary with cultural and religious expectations.’

    Race Equality Foundation 2020

    Care Act 2014

    Significant rights for carers in England.

    Entitlement to a carer’s assessment where you appear to have eligible needs.

    General duty on local authorities to promote a person’s WELLBEING to provide information and advice to carers in relation to their caring role and their own needs.

    Carers may become vulnerable because of their caring role…

    …in terms of

    • risk of illness
    • social isolation
    • reduced finances at the present time & in the future
    • Personal freedom, because they support people who depend on them

    What being a carer means

    Please watch the following short video

    Video Lizzie and Steve (4:06)

    Q. So what does it mean to be a carer and specifically an unpaid family/friend carer?

    A. The term “carer” is quite generally used in society and can mean someone who is a paid professional and maybe works in a care home or for an agency.

    We define it as people who provide unpaid care for family, friends, neighbours etc. not healthcare professionals!

    Q. Can you give me an example?

    A. As we mention in the information you just saw, every situation is unique for family friend carers: age, who they care for, the reason for the care, financial resources and care they provide, all vary.

    It could be a young adult carer looking after a parent with a mental health challenge.

    Maybe someone looking after their partner with cancer or a neighbour looking after another neighbour who requires additional support due to frailty and older age.

    Q. So how does this affect people?

    A. It can be life changing. A caring role can happen overnight or be a gradual progression.

    For example, caring for a person after an accident or stroke has different initial requirements compared to looking after someone with dementia or frailty due to age.

    Q. Do carers have to live with the person they help?

    Not at all. They might even live in a different city.

    They may also be managing their own health conditions.

    Carers may become vulnerable as caring can be stressful and lead to a risk of illness. Some other ways they can be impacted include:

    Being isolated from friends and social events.

    They will probably suffer a negative financial impact.

    Almost certainly they have less personal freedom because of the support they provide.

    Q. So does everyone think of caring as a role and get help?

    A. Absolutely not.

    It can take a while for someone to realise they have a caring role, it is not unusual to hear carers say,

    ‘I am just looking after my wife’, or ‘She is my mum and so I want to look after her’.

    A caring role can mean very different things and it is important to also understand that there are sometimes cultural expectations and worries that carers may have about seeking support.

    Q. So carers roles are not all the same?

    A. Exactly.

    Carers experiences are unique even though there might be similarities.

    What one may be able to manage another may find incredibly challenging.

    For example, someone in full time work may not have the time to support the person they help go to appointments.

    A carer may feel they will be judged on their caring role or even that the person they care for will be removed.

    Q. So how could we sum up the term unpaid family/friend carer?

    A. It’s probably easiest to think about impact: if you help another person to live their life and that begins to prevent you from being able to do things in your life that are important and support your wellbeing, then you may want to think about accessing support.

    Q. What support?

    A. Well, the Care Act 2014 says that carers have a right to have their own needs assessed by the local authority. This is separate from any assessment of the person being helped.

    There is no legal requirement for people to take on a care role but anyone who thinks they might be a carer can call us or complete our online referral and we will carry out a free assessment with them. If they need greater support, we will refer them to BHCC for a full assessment.

    Q. I’ve heard about Carers Allowance?

    A. There is an allowance that some carers can claim but they are still seen as an unpaid carer.

    Q. What about if someone is working as well as caring?

    A. For working carers and employers, there are resources that are available which have been created by Carers UK.

    The Digital Resource for Carers is available to any carer in Brighton and Hove. You can get details from the Carers Centre.

    Here at the Carers Centre, we also have fact sheets and other information for working carers and a specialist working carer lead.

    Who are Young Carers?

    Who are Young Carers?

    Young Carers are young people under the age of 18 who:

    • help to look after a family member with a long term health condition, disability, or substance misuse issue;
    • take on caring responsibilities including tasks typically carried out by an adult or considered inappropriate for their age;
    • are impacted by the family member’s condition- own daily activities or support available to them are affected.

    This is usually a parent or sibling but can be any family member who the young carer may or may not live with but who they see on a regular/daily basis.

    Young Adult Carers (YACs) refers to young people with a caring role between the ages of 18 and 25.

    What do Young Carers do?

    A Young Carer may support a family member with any of the following:

    Practical careDomestic chores, going to the shops, managing money, looking after siblings, locking up the house, communicating

    Physical careLifting, pushing a wheelchair, helping with stairs, exercises or using equipment

    Medical careAdministering medication or injections, organising/attending appointments

    Personal/intimate careWashing, dressing, feeding, toileting

    Emotional careListening to/supporting the cared for person, comforting or being present.

    What do we mean by …?

    Please watch the following short video.

    Video Lizzie (2:31)

    What do we mean by ‘Young Carer’ or ‘Young Adult Carer’?

    A Young Carer is a young person under the age of 18 caring for someone in their family while a Young Adult Carer usually refers to someone age 18-25. They may be supporting a family member for various reasons, including someone with a long-term health condition, disability or substance misuse issue. This is usually someone who the young person lives with such as their parent or sibling but can include other family members they see regularly.

    How might a Young Carer help out?

    Young Carers can provide support in different ways, for example they might carry out practical or physical tasks, or support with medical or personal care. Many young carers are also providing emotional support, for example to family members with a mental health condition. This type of care goes unseen by others but provides much needed support to the family member. Often young people are not even aware that what they are doing is considered caring.

    How does this affect a Young Carer?

    Depending on the level of support a young person provides, their caring responsibilities can have a significant impact on their health, education or social life. For example, inappropriate levels of care can impact on a young person’s own emotional or physical well-being. They may feel tired from getting up in the night to support their sibling or be anxious or fearful about their parent’s health. Looking after someone can also impact on a young person’s social life or educational achievement as they may have less time to spend with friends, or to do homework.

    What support is available?

    The Young Carers Project supports young people living in Brighton and Hove aged 6-17 to access the help they need to manage their caring role and its impact. The Carers Hub also supports Young Adult Carers up to the age of 25. We offer 1:1 emotional support so young people can have someone to talk to about their caring role and better understand their family member’s condition or disability. We advocate on the young carer’s behalf with other professionals to ensure they get the right support and to limit the impact of the caring role.  Young carers can meet others in a similar situation at our activities which run after school and in the holidays, giving them much needed respite time and the chance to relax and have fun together.

    National caring picture

    There could be as many as 13.6 million carers in the UK, since the pandemic there have been an estimated increase of 4.5 million carers.

    The contribution carers make to the UK economy in a year is equivalent to £132 billion.

    1 in 8 workers have caring responsibilities outside of their employment, and 1 in 5 carers give up work to care. In fact it is now estimated that 2.8 million people have started caring since the outbreak and are now balancing work alongside caring responsibilities.

    Carers voices – what it means to be a carer

    Please watch the following short video

    Credit: Carers Trust (2:51)

    Before he was ill, our life was wonderful as long as we were together. Michael has cancer and has acquired brain injuries. He ended up on life support for a month and wasn’t the same again.

    I lost my husband and it was difficult to take the change. I’m expected to carry on and look after him.

    My daughters are the most important things to me. Simran is eight and has special needs. We’re constantly at different hospitals and her day-to-day activities have to be supported no matter what.

    Emotionally, it’s crazy and I had to learn ways of dealing with the emotional strain. Socially, I’m completely isolated and physically I’m exhausted.

    I had to learn so much as I’m the financer, nurse, and secretary all rolled into one, which is totally overwhelming.

    I’ve been suicidal before. Giving up my career as a project manager in the office was a big change. It became clear Simran was going to need more support.

    To make ends meet, I had to be creative. I can phone Carer’s Trust for help and the sitting service gives me me time.

    Carers Trust has provided information and specialist advice which has made a tremendous difference. They also recently had a well-being appointment, which was so helpful.

    As carers, we take our own health for granted, but Carers Trust is looking out for us and prolonging our ability to look after the people we love.

    I’ve made Michael’s life as good as I possibly can with the support I’ve received. It’s not all doom and gloom and I’m grateful for the support I’ve received. I’m looking forward to the future.

    What a care role involves and barriers

    Please watch the following short video.

    Video Lizzie and Steve (2:48)

    Q. What barriers might there be to someone seeing themselves as a carer?

    A. Well, unfortunately there are quite a lot.

    Some might be cultural or religious – the person providing the care might feel that it is just the normal or right thing for them to do – they have a sense of duty to provide the care. In some cultures, there can even be feelings of shame that care is having to be provided.

    Q. What about examples where it’s not cultural?

    A. It might be the case that the caring has evolved out of normal life, such as people living together who naturally help each other but maybe frailty has led to more reliance on one person.

    There are also people who just don’t want to be a burden or have people “interfering” in their lives.

    Q. Does the word “carer” ever become an issue?

    A. Sometimes the term itself is a barrier either because it is thought of only as for professionals or, people don’t want to be labelled in this way – they might feel their relationship is diminished by the term. We often hear “I’m their partner/wife/husband not their carer”.

    Q. Are there any other barriers?

    A. Time to register can be a problem too and especially where the carer may have work as well.

    Some people might think they have to be receiving carers allowance.

    For working carers, there can be fear that they will miss out on promotion or other opportunities if they reveal they have a care role.

    Lastly, getting information and registering as a carer might be quite scary if English isn’t your first language, you don’t have the internet or maybe the information is not presented to you in a way that you can access or understand.

    Q. So how might I approach someone to find out if they are a carer and see if there is support they might need?

    A. The easiest way is to just ask about their circumstances in a friendly, relaxed manner.

    You could say something like, “Do you help your mum out?” or “Have you ever thought about getting help with your partner?”

    This naturally leads onto opportunities to signpost the support that is available via organisations like The Carers Centre/Hub.

    Q. Finally what might a care role actually look like?

    A. As we said before, each situation is unique but there are some common things that carers do.

    They might be providing practical help with things like washing, cleaning, cooking, shopping etc.

    They might assist the person to take medication or provide personal care such as helping them to visit the bathroom, shower etc.

    The help provided might be about financial matters or it could be giving the person emotional support.

    The key is that without that support, the person would not be able to cope.

    Supporting carers in Primary Care

    This short video highlights the importance of identifying carers in primary care settings

    GP There are so many people who get missed in the hurry to get seen, examined, diagnosed and out.

    GP Receptionist And out you can often miss what’s right there in front of you. And be so focused on the patient and their needs, you actually miss the person in the background. The person that actually might be struggling to cope.

    GP We get 10 minutes for each patient, focused on their needs often not enough time to delve into their carers needs.  We’re doing our best to deliver a service under pressure with as much empathy as we can manage.

    Patients don’t see the pressure, they don’t see the stress, the effort to stay ahead of targets and provide the standard of care we expect of ourselves. But we can take so much pressure of the system and ourselves by preventing those patients from being there in the first place.

    GP Receptionist So just by asking a few easy questions and following a few simple guidelines, we can help those that are caring for others.

    Most carers actually don’t know they are carers and that actually they can get support from other services. We know that by helping carers earlier in their caring journey we can help reduce demand on our services in the longer term.

    Carer It feels like I’m invisible. All the focus is on my mum and what she needs. I don’t want to make a fuss or cause any bother, but being able to get a GP appointment when I’m not working would really help.

    GP There’s a list of questions and guidelines developed by GPs and supporting organisations for best practice, to make sure that we are identifying carers and supporting them properly.

    The Quality Markers developed by the NHS help identify carers and support them in six different areas.

    • Identification and registration – Basically, trying to find out who the carers are and have a separate register for them and then direct them to the appropriate available resources and services.
    • Appointments and access –  Offering flexible appointments to carers when they need it and where they need it, sometimes even out of hours.
    • Information, Involvement and Communication – Asking the right questions. Rather than asking “are you a carer?” instead asking “are you looking after someone who cannot cope without you?” Then we can signpost them to local carer services.
    • Holistic support – Improving the care experience. Training staff to be carer aware from the moment they enter the door, through every interaction they have with the practice.
    • In practice support – For example, having a dedicated Carer Champion within your practice.
    • Awareness and Culture – Through your career champions, ensuring that the entire practice understands the care quality markers and implements them effectively.

    By making some simple changes, our practice has improved CQC practice compliance, improved health and well-being of our carers, reduced demand on our services and staff, made financial savings in prescribing budgets, made better use of our practice appointments and targeted treatments. This will reduce stress on the patients and reduce stress on their carers and us as GPs and ensure the best possible outcomes for them.

    Because we care too.

    The Carers Centre can support your practice with implementing the recommendations set out in the Quality Markers

    Contact our Primary Care Link Worker at for support

    For more information NHS England: Supporting carers in General Practice – A Framework of Quality Markers

    Supporting carers in General Practice: A Framework of Quality Markers

    The GP Carer Quality Markers have been developed by NHS England and endorsed by the CQC, to help general practice to identify and support unpaid carers.

    The Quality Markers ask general practice 6 questions about how they support carers. The document provides a number of proactive suggestions that can be implemented in primary care settings.

    A Declaration Template is included at the end of the document. The declaration can be completed by the practice and made available for CQC inspections. Adherence to the quality markers is recognised as good practice by the CQC.

    For support completing the Declaration template, please contact our Primary Care Link worker at The Carers Centre for Brighton and Hove. We can arrange a meeting with you to discuss the support your practice is offering to carers and help you to extend this.

    We have specific support for carers who are looking after someone with a mental health challenge – this service is called Changes Ahead and offers one to one emotional support and a specific monthly meet up.

    We also support carers who are looking after someone with an end-of-life condition and offer one to one emotional support.

    Q. it sounds like quite a lot so far. Is there anything else?

    A. Yes. We support carers, with access to the My Health Matters service through Crossroads. This provides someone to be with the person being cared for while the carer attends their own health and wellbeing appointments.

    We also support carers with direct referrals to the Alzheimer’s Society where they can get specialist dementia support.

    And as mentioned previously, we also support young people to manage their caring role and it’s impact. The Young Carers Project supports young carers from the age of 6, and young adults up to 25 through the Carers Hub. They are offered emotional support and advocacy as well as opportunities to meet other young people for peer support and to take part in activities.

    We know that is a lot to remember, so please feel free to give us a call or check our website for information.
