Crossroads Together is offering urgent free carer breaks for up to a maximum of three hours, to enable the carer to take some time out at this difficult time until services resume. 

  • The carer breaks do not have to be 3 hours as some individual feel this is too long so this is something that can be discussed while booking the breaks.
  • They are looking at supporting individuals that are a critical stage that normally have other support from family or carer break but due to covid-19 cannot gain this support.
  • They can also do these breaks ongoing and they don’t have to be a one off.

Carers Choice Vote

Carers Choice

Cheshire East Carers' Hub recognises the important role Carers undertake and we work to ensure that Carers can fulfil their caring role whilst maintaining their own health and wellbeing.

The Hub are working with other community organisations and groups in Cheshire East to provide Carers with a break from their caring role through the disbursement of Carers Choice Grants.

This booklet contains information about the projects that have been shortlisted for Carers Choice by a Carers Panel. Organisations were invited to apply for up to £8,000 per project and there is £85,000 funding to award in total. Each project has also participated in filming a short video presentation to help your choice and you can view the videos on our website www.cheshireeastcarershub.co.uk.

Your votes really do count and which of these projects receive funding really is up to you! Please read this booklet, view the videos and vote for the projects you think will benefit Carers most in Cheshire East.

To vote rate each project from 1-14, 1 being your favourite through to 14 being your least favourite. You must be registered with The Hub to vote and voting forms must be received via our freepost address no later than Friday 20th March 2020.
