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‚Äô Strategy.
Knowsley Carers Centre will be closed from Monday 23rd December 2019 until Thursday 2nd January 2020. If during this period you require urgent support with health and social care issues, please contact the Knowsley Access Team on Tel 0151 443 2600.
All the staff would like to wish everyone our very best wishes for a good Christmas and a peaceful New Year.

Knowsley Carers Centre will shortly begin issuing ID cards for carers. Lots of places offer concessions for carers and some shops even offer discounts. However, it can be a barrier trying to prove that you are a carer, especially if you are not getting any benefits in respect of your caring role.
You will need to arrange an appointment with Judy to attend one of our Centres in person with proof of your ID and have a photograph taken so the card can be issued. The ID cards will be valid for one year and there will be an annual renewal charge of ¬£1. For more information, and to request your ID card, please call Judy on 0151 549 1412.
