We are delighted to share the news that from today (1 April 2021) We Care You Care is a South Tees brand with information and signposting to support Carers in Redcar & Cleveland as well as Middlesbrough.
The project which was set up and hosted by MVDA will be funded by both local authorities.
Working carer, Gill Durdan explained:
"We Care You Care is a fabulous resource for carers, from knowing your rights to finding agencies that support carers in your local area.
Easy access to the right information, empowers carers with choices to find support that is right for them and those they care for.”
Our website helps people who are looking after a loved one recognise they are in a caring role and includes news, blogs, carers rights information, financial support, well-being advice, Covid-19 information, signposting to services and much more.
Our Facebook page www.facebook.com/wecareyoucarelocal shares information relevant to local carers including activities, services and offers from local organisations as well as ‘We Care, You Care’ campaigns.
Kelly Baxter, Project Lead for We Care You Care said;
We are excited to expand We Care You Care into Redcar & Cleveland and look forward to engaging with services and carers across the South Tees to promote what you do"
Want to get involved?
If you are looking after a loved one and want to share your experiences to highlight issues, encourage other carers to access support or to raise awareness on the highs and lows of providing unpaid care you can do so in a range of ways and with support. Contact us for more information via email: email@example.com
There is also a live Carers Survey that we are encouraging all unpaid carers across South Tees to complete so our local authorities can have a greater understanding of the amount and level of care taking place now and gather information that will help to shape the future of local services.
