Services for Carers

Torfaen Carers Support

A service to provide support to unpaid carers within Torfaen.

Our Carer Support Worker can offer a variety of support including practical support such as introducing carers to local services or tackling long standing issues such as exploring small changes in the house to make caring easier, provide information, signposting, and helping to build up support networks. All support provided is always tailored around the individual to ensure that the needs of the client are met.

Carers’ Emergency Card Scheme

If you are a carer in Torfaen then you are eligible to use the carers' emergency card. The card works by allowing people to identify you as a carer in an emergency, similar to the way a donor card works.

Carers’ Library Card

With a Carer’s Card you can borrow a total of 50 items for yourself and the person you care for. Advantages include no overdue charges should you keep your books late and the first 3 week loan period free for talking books. Subsequent weeks for talking books are charged at the usual rate.
