FURNESS CARERS update during COVID-19

Due to the COVID-19 Virus, Furness Carers staff have been working from home since the national lockdown in March 2020, firstly on a very limited basis through our CEO and Carers Support Services Manager, and then since the beginning of April with our Carers Support Services Advisers and Young Carers Support Workers working through new referrals, Carers Assessments and Carers Reviews. Home working is something new to us, and the arranging of equipment and setting up all our IT programmes took a little time but we got there. We would like to thank Cumbria Community Foundation and Carers Support Cumbria for their support in enabling us to do this and to Millerwaite for moving quickly to source and set up our equipment.

To allow for safe working practices for everyone our office premises will remain closed to Carers and the general public until further notice, but it is very important that we get the message out that we are still open, working hard and supporting Carers throughout Furness, so we are asking if you need any information, a Carers review or a new Carers Assessment, or if you want to make a referral for an Adult or Young Carer then please leave us a message on our answerphone 01229 822822, giving us your name and a contact number, or alternatively send an email to our answer machine and emails are checked daily Monday to Friday and someone will get back to you ASAP.


Are you a Carer?

Carers look after family, partners or friends in need of help because they are ill, frail or have disability. The care they provide is unpaid.
