Winter Flu Season is here
Winter flu season is upon us and this year Carers are being encouraged to get their flu jab. These are free, and protect you as well as the person you care for.
If you are the main Carer for someone, who may be put at risk if you became ill, you are eligible for a free flu jab. If you receive Carer’s allowance, you are also entitled to a free flu jab. If you feel this applies to you, you can request a flu jab from your GP surgery or local pharmacist.
Please get in touch with us if you would like a letter that “proves” you have caring responsibilities and you are therefore entitled to a free vaccination.”
You can call us on 020 8877 1200 or email: email@example.com
Calling on all unpaid carers to take a survey on what support you need in your caring role!
Carers Trust has launched a survey of unpaid adult carers to find out what support unpaid carers need from government. The survey also asks how social care reform could support carers more effectively. The findings of the survey will help inform a Carers Trust campaign to improve the future support available to carers from the government.
Please spread the word with any unpaid carers you know to make sure as many unpaid carers as possible take the survey. The survey is live and will run up to 18 October.
