Essex County Fire and Rescue Service

It's #CarersWeek and we're calling upon our carers in Essex to think about the fire safety of the family and friends you care for. 

While popping in, take some time to test their smoke alarms and make sure their escape routes out of the house are clear 

If they do not have at least one working smoke alarm per level of their home you can arrange a free home safety visit which will include the fitting of free smoke alarms if appropriate by calling 0300 303 0088 or visiting Essex Fire Service's website at www.essex-fire.gov.uk


Do you, or anyone care for, need access to palliative care or specialist medicines?

Action to Family Carer Support

Local Support for Carers from EPUT

While caring for someone can be rewarding, there may be times when you find yourself dealing with difficult and stressful situations. You may feel that you are alone and that no-one can help. You may have feelings of confusion, guilt, loss, frustration and even anger.

https://eput.nhs.uk/get-involved/support-for-carers/


Local Support Counselling

We offer a free, confidential counselling service where Adult Carers can receive individual counselling sessions from qualified counsellors in Essex.

Counselling is a confidential talking therapy which gives you the opportunity to talk about your concerns, and any emotional difficulties you are experiencing with a counsellor. Sessions take place in a quiet, undisturbed and safe setting and may help you explore your situation and see things more clearly and gain more understanding of yourself. Counselling can also provide extra support outside of your network of family and friends.

Local Help for young people looking after someone

Looking after someone in your family can be rewarding, but it can also be difficult, and be especially hard for young people.

It may make things more difficult at school, mean you don't have time to go out with your friends, do homework, or do things you'd like to do. 

There is help available for young carers. The council can help suggest things that will make things easier for you, and help you continue to help your family.
