DO YOU SUPPORT OR LOOK AFTER SOMEBODY?

In Essex around 18,000 people provide unpaid care or support to adult family member or friend, either in their own home or somewhere else. It can be difficult to recognise yourself as a carer; you might think you are just being a good friend, neighbour or spouse and are ‘just doing what needs to be done’.

Caring for someone covers lots of different things, like helping with their washing, dressing or eating, taking them to regular appointments or keeping them company when they feel lonely or anxious.

Carer Respite Break Scheme – in partnership with Colchester Catalyst Charity
If eligible, grants of up to £600 per year are available for carers who live in the ‘CO’ postcode area to achieve a carer’s break; specifically where assistance is not available from statutory organisations.

To find out if you are eligible to receive a grant please contact our Project Manager, Margaret Andrews. You may be able to identify a short break opportunity that can be taken now or you might want to make plans for later in the year.

Follow us on Facebook for regular updates, advice and information.
We look forward to hearing from you!

2-can Project – is a partnership project delivered by SUMMIT and Essex Carers Support in Tendring. Together we help support the health and emotional wellbeing of vulnerable people and their carers who might be at risk of harm or self-neglect and enable people to identify the solutions, support and services that will assist their recovery and support their long term wellbeing.

Community Outreach – We are working at a very local community level developing innovative and creative ways to connect with family carers. We focus on connecting with community groups to identify and reach out to people who may not identify themselves as carers and/or be connected to support services. If you are a community group who suspect you may have members who are caring for others, we might be able to help you help your membership.

Address: Hurlingham Chambers

Rating (average):

Description:

y.e.s. provides a confidential, non-judgemental and informal service for young people between the ages of 11 and 25 within Colchester and Tendring, who are facing difficulties in their lives.
If you are facing homelessness and need housing advice, if you are having family problems, if you are feeling low, depressed or suicidal, if you need advice about debts or would like to check you are claiming all the benefits you are entitled to, if you are teenager and are pregnant, if you are a young family who needs support, or if you need a CV, training or work advice, then y.e.s. can help you.
y.e.s. can provide help and support with many problems that you may be experiencing – and if we can’t help you ourselves then we will find someone who can, and will support you in getting that help.

Colchester’s very own early Youth Enquiry Service has been serving the community for 30 years now and here’s what we have learnt:

1) The issues facing young people are increasing in severity and impact

2) The attitude towards mental health has positively progressed within our community, but is not gaining enough support at government level

3) Our early intervention services have helped thousands to avoid crisis support services later in life, saving millions in social care

4) The people we see are not constrained to any specific demographics

5) Sometimes all people really need is someone to listen and encourage

6) Children today are exposed to innumerable more influences through social media than ever before

7) A couple hours in a garden can be all it takes to bring out a long-forgotten smile

“If you need help, the answer is y.e.s. – supporting young people.”
