Welcome to Gloucestershire Carers Hub


Welcome to Gloucestershire Carers Hub


Gloucestershire Carers Hub supports unpaid Carers throughout the county of Gloucestershire.

We cover the following areas:

  • Gloucester
  • Cheltenham
  • Forest of Dean
  • Tewkesbury
  • Cotswolds
  • Stroud
  • If you support someone who lives in Gloucestershire but you live out of county

You maybe be supporting someone with physical or emotional needs, they could be living independently from you but require your support on a daily or weekly basis. This could be due to ill health, frailty, mental health or due to an addiction. They may also live in residential care/ support but you remain an active part of their support network.

There is no minimum requirement for the number of hours which you are supporting someone for.

You may be supporting them:

  • Via the telephone offering emotional support
  • Taking someone to appointments
  • Supporting with cooking, cleaning, shopping and other daily tasks
  • Assisting with dressing, cleaning and other personal care needs
  • Going in to check on someone regularly

Whatever you do to support someone else you are a Carer even if you don’t think of yourself as one.

The individual who you are supporting could be:

  • A family member; spouse, husband, wife, child, adult child or partner
  • A friend
  • A neighbour
  • An ex-partner

Whoever you are supporting we are here to offer advice, information and support to you to enable you to think about your needs whilst offering support to someone else.

If there are a number of people supporting someone, we welcome anyone providing support to someone to register with us to access information, support and our services.

OFSTED and the CQC have announced a Local Area SEND Inspection of Gloucestershire. The Inspection will take place over a three-week period from 27th November to 15th December 2023.

Parent Carers are invited to complete the OFSTED Survey https://ofsted.smartsurvey.co.uk/p/AreaSend/10284752 between now and 9am on 5th December. We are keen for as many Parent Carers as possible to complete the survey. This provides an insight for Inspectors of a wide range of experiences families have had. Please do take a few moments to share your views. If you are unable to use the online survey you can email lasend.support@ofsted.gov.uk for an accessible version.

We will be meeting with Inspectors as part of the process and want to ensure that your views are shared. We will be making good use of all that you have shared with us over the past year.
