Raising the Profile of Unpaid Carers within Gloucestershire
Carer Aware Professional Information sessions
One of the main focuses of Gloucestershire Carers Hub is to support professionals to become more Carer Aware.
Carer Aware was developed following an idea from an unpaid Carer within Gloucestershire. The Carer suggested a discreet way of identifying someone who is an unpaid Carer would support them within their community and with professionals.
Gloucestershire County Council designed the Carer Aware logo and there are now various ways which Carers can be identified in a discreet manner.
There are various items which are available to unpaid Carers within Gloucestershire, and these include:
- Carer Aware Badge
- Carer Aware Lanyard
- Carer Aware Discount Card
These items are available from us for registered Carers at the Gloucestershire Carers Hub.
Being Carer Aware
Gloucestershire Carers Hub hosts a monthly information session to increase the knowledge of professionals who may come in to contact with unpaid Carers within their job roles or in their personal lives.
These sessions allow you to come along and find out about all of the free services and support which is available to unpaid Carers within the county.
If you would like to come along to one of our professional awareness sessions to find out more, please sign up to our mailing list by emailing email@example.com
There is also Carer Aware e-learning available to all professionals within the county, this can be accessed by clicking here.
Carer Aware Professionals Weeks
Throughout the year we run various Carer Aware Professionals Weeks, these weeks allow individuals who work with or meet with Carers, to join short virtual sessions which incorporate elements of the service we offer in more detail.
