New services – New staff

Despite the situation we have continued to provide a full programme of activities and services to carers. We have continued to re-evaluate our services, listened to what carers are telling us and respond to their need. We cannot just remain as things are; the need for Swansea Carers Centre has increased and has become more complex, and thanks to new funding we will be able to extend and provide new services in the next few weeks.

NEW – Male Development Worker – Des Barnett.

Male carers often go unrecognised and receive even less support. We are delighted to welcome Des to the team who will be engaging with male carers and develop services to support them and their needs.  Contact des@swanseacarerscentre.org.uk

NEW – Hospital Outreach Worker – Debra Evans.

We are fortunate that we already have a hospital outreach worker, Liz Rees, who has been supporting carers and patients in Morriston, Singleton, Gorseinon and Cefn Coed hospitals. The demand for this role has been incredible and we are delighted to be able to announce that Debra will be joining Liz to continue supporting carers whose loved one is in hospital or being discharged from hospital.

NEW– Mental Health Well-being Support project – Irene Mortimer and Anne Nagle

Isolation, loneliness and other issues have already been identified as areas of concerns as a result of the pandemic. By increasing our telephone and on-line support we aim to improve carers’ well-being during this crisis.
