Knowsley Carers Centre

As you will be aware, the emergence of Coronavirus is requiring governments, organisations, and individuals to make a range of changes to our normal everyday activities to help delay the spread of the virus.
All our work is undertaken with Carers who are potentially at greater risk if they were exposed to the virus. Therefore, following guidance from our Trustee Board and current government advice around reducing social contact, Knowsley Carers Centre has taken the decision to cancel meetings and other face to face activities.
During this period, Knowsley Carers Centre will be aiming to support Carers in other ways, we will be providing a telephone advice only service. Our staff team will remain available during office hours. Please contact Knowsley Carers Centre on 549 1412.

Carers Survey

Calling all carers- please complete our survey.

Do you help to look after a friend or family member who due to illness, disability, a mental health problem or an addiction would struggle without your support? If you do, then please take a few minutes to let us know your views.
Knowsley Council has worked in partnership with local carers and partners to develop a survey. The aim of the survey is to gather the views of unpaid carers and ensure their voice is at the very heart of the new Knowsley Carers’ Strategy.
