Free access to tailored digital resources to support unpaid carers

Working with leading national charity Carers UK, we are giving unpaid carers free access to new digital resources. DRC_guide.pdf (carersuk.org) is an online platform that hosts a wealth of resources for carers to help them build resilience in their caring role.

The resources can help primary care to deliver on the NHS Long Term Plan » Our long term commitment to carers and includes e-learning, guides and comprehensive signposting, access to MyBackUp, a simple contingency planning tool for what might happen in an emergency, and Jointly, Carers UK’s care co-ordination app.

Carers UK have published Digital Resource for Carers and Jointly - Carers UK guidance for health professionals which explains how the offer works and includes an access code to provide unpaid carers as well as ideas and tips for how to refer them for support.
