The services we provide include:
Telephone and Information service - providing information about benefits and entitlements, support services and carers rights (including information about Carers Assessments); run activities to improve your health and wellbeing; and point you towards additional services that can support you in your caring role.
The Sitting Service - We understand how important it is for carers to have easy access to respite care. NPT Carers Service want to do our part to help.
We have a low-level volunteer sitting service to enable carers to take a short break for any purpose.
We also facilitate domiciliary care for those with higher care needs. This particular service is available to carers on an ad-hoc basis for medical appointments and occasional breaks. This higher-level service is dependent on funding, so we advise carers to contact us to discuss their needs.
An Outreach Support Service - Providing face to face advice and support in various community venues such as GP surgeries, hospitals, shopping centres and libraries.
Coffee Mornings and Activities - provide carers with a break from caring and meet with other carers for mutual support.
Home Visits - to complete carers assessments, provide information or assist with completing benefit forms. (Please note that these home visits are currently suspended due to COVID-19.)
NPT Carers Service works closely with its partners – Neath Port Talbot County Borough Council and ABMU Health Board – to ensure carers identified in Neath Port Talbot are provided with the right information at the right time
