Call for unpaid carers to look after themselves this winter

Posted on:

Devon Carers is encouraging all unpaid carers to have the COVID-19 booster to help protect themselves, and the people they care for, from coronavirus this winter.

As someone who gives their time to support a family member, friend, or neighbour, it’s really important that unpaid carers look after their own health and wellbeing first.

We recognise that COVID-19 is particularly challenging for unpaid carers, and so have provided additional funding for ‘Special Schemes’ that have been designed to help when they need a break from their caring role.

If this sounds like you or someone you know, please get in touch with Devon Carers, they offer a range of specialist support from a listening ear to advice on break funds and emergency planning.

Visit the Devon Carers website or call 01392 307720.
