Support for Carers in Sandwell
Sandwell Council estimates that there are around 35000 carers in Sandwell, but approximately 3000 get some help and support i.e. financial, emotional and social help.
Healthwatch Sandwell is carrying out a project to help to influence the commissioning of support services for adult carers residing in Sandwell Metropolitan Borough. The project uses a survey to ask questions of carers about their experiences and needs. We are also using focus groups and interviews to collect feedback from carers and are appealing for carers in Sandwell to take part.
We will also be holding focus groups in each of the six towns in Sandwell for people to come together and share their experiences of being a carer. If you would like to take part in a focus group, please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org or ring us on 0121 569 7210.
If you just want to talk to us about being a carer on a one-to-one basis, please contact us.
