At Barnet Carers Centre we provide Carers Needs Assessments on behalf of the London Borough of Barnet. You may have had one of these as a carer. These are important assessments as they need to be done before you can access support from the local authority.
If you have had an assessment in the last year, you do not need another one unless you think that your circumstances have changed, however, if it has been more than a year since your last assessment or if you have never had one, we would like to offer you the opportunity to have one and make sure that you are getting the support and help that you need.
There are many benefits to having an assessment: There are opportunities to apply for grants; we work with a charity to help provide free holidays for carers; a free leisure pass; emergency cover through our red card scheme; employment support; counselling and much more.
A Carers Needs Assessment can be done over the telephone or face to face and takes about an hour. Before the assessment, we will send you an online link to a form where you can fill in many of the questions yourself. All of that information is kept in strict confidence and is only used to help and support you.
Getting an assessment does not take long and will mean that we can offer you access to some really great help and support. You can book below by choosing a day and time that suits you. If you choose a telephone appointment, we will call you.
We look forward to being able to help.
