Carers Week!

It’s #carersweek and every day this week we’ll be releasing a top tip from Emma Taylor of Dyneley House Surgery, #Skipton, on how to stay healthy and connected. Today’s tip is to keep talking.

Emma says: “Try to socialise and keep in touch with your contacts to avoid becoming isolated. Caring responsibilities can put strains on relationships but coffee with a friend can do wonders for your mental wellbeing.”

A day in the life of a carer

We recently filmed a day in Elizabeth’s life as she cares for her sister Shirley. It was very moving. Please watch our short video.

Bradford Carer’s Survey

As part of deciding how services for carers in Bradford District will be prioritised and funded in the future Bradford Council and the local NHS are conducting a survey that they want carers to complete.

It is very important that as many carers as possible feed back to the council about the services they have used, their needs, and what provision for carers they would like to see. It is of course especially important to Carers’ Resource that carers in Bradford District who have used our services and been satisfied with them let the Council know!

Complete the survey by visiting this link (survey opens in a new tab).


If you would rather complete a printed version of this survey please get in touch with us.
