This service is delivered by the Communities in Sync Consortium (CIS) and was established in November 2019. CIS is a consortium of local health, social care and well-being providers working together in partnership to improve the lives of people in the local community. The Caring for Carers service is funded by Birmingham City Council and supports carers through loss and bereavement throughout Birmingham. Other partner providers delivering this project are: Ideal for All, Crossroads Care, Sandwell African Caribbean Mental Health Foundation and West Bromwich African Caribbean Resource Centre.
The Caring for Carers service supports carers in Birmingham through loss and bereavement. We can:
- Provide one to one wellbeing support that is tailored to your needs in your own home or in the community.
- Connect you with other carers through our weekly support groups and social media groups.
- Wellbeing support through our healing garden, Living Memory stories and other activities.
Sandwell Advocacy employs two members of staff to work alongside consortium colleagues as Health and Wellbeing Officers. The service goes from strength to strength using whatever is available to help those in need. Other strands of the service offered are a Healing Garden for those green fingered people and Living Memory for people wishing to share their stories using photographs and their own words to describe their lives together.
