The Carers Needs Assessment Process

“Who cares about you?” Your role involves giving, but what is it taking to be a Carer?

The Carers Needs Assessment Process is available to help you consider your circumstances and help you discover what information, support and services may be available to support you in your caring role and to support you as an individual to maintain your own life alongside your caring role?

More information about the process of assessing the needs of Carers can be found in the following booklet. The Pan Wales Working Group, made up from members from the Carers Officer Learning and Improvement Network, created this document 'Good Practice Information for Carers Assessments Booklet'.

Whether the person you care for will only accept the care you give or if they are eligible and already receive Adult Social Care services, the Carers Needs Assessment process can help you explore your circumstances and what services are available to support you as a Carer.
