Many carers look after people who are vulnerable, so it's particularly important to follow the Government's latest health advice.
If you are a carer and feel that you may need to forego your care duties due to any illness, now is a good time to look to put a contingency plan in place. It is also a good time to make cover arrangements with trusted neighbours, friends or family members.
Read Care UK's advice on creating a contingency plan or contact the carers centre for guidance.
The Carers Centre will be closed to the public from Wednesday 18 March. Our teams are still working, but will be relying on the phone and online tools to keep in touch with carers across the city.
As we settle into this new way of working, we may take a little longer to respond than usual - so please be patient with us.
You can contact the carers centre by phone on 023 9285 1864 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
