During the last few weeks EQuIP and the Equality Network have identified a number of issues relating to informal carers who are caring for older and more vulnerable people.
In response we have developed a number of useful tools to help and support carers through this difficult time.
- A letter for anyone being cared for or caring explaining the need for a Contingency Plan
- A letter for supermarkets to explain the need for extra purchases to support a vulnerable person, or enable access at the restricted 'vulnerable shopper only' times
- A Contingency Plan if you are caring for someone and have to make alternative arrangements in a hurry. It includes useful reminders so that if you have to self isolate or develop symptoms then a plan is in place to ensure minimum disruption.
