  • A worker who can talk to you on the telephone and help to identify sources of local help.
  • Advice about welfare benefits and help with completing claim forms. We can visit you at home to do this if you wish. To request benefits advice please go the Contact Us page.
  • Volunteers who can offer emotional support and a listening ear for carers who are isolated. (see our page on Emotional Support for more details)
  • Support Groups where you can meet with other carers. See our “Events” page for dates of forthcoming group meetings.
  • Our Support Worker Service can provide flexible help at home with shopping, meals, companionship, trips to appointments and trips out. This service does not provide personal care.  See our Support at Home page, or contact us for further information.
  • Carers Card – As a carer, you may often worry about what would happen to the person you care for if you suddenly became ill or were involved in an accident. Bexley operates a Carers Emergency Card scheme which is free to apply for, just contact us for more details.
  • Carers Emergency Plan helps you to think about who could be available to help you in an emergency and to have important information about your loved ones and their needs in one place. For a template and more information about the plan please visit bexleycarers.co.uk/emergency-future-planning/
  • As a carer having the right information at the right time can make a big difference to you and the person you care for. You can find more information and support on the Bexley Carers Website: https://bexleycarers.co.uk/
