CARES recognises the culturally diverse nature of the Sandwell community and strives to offer culturally sensitive one-to-one support to Black and Ethnic Minority Carers within the borough.

We help Carers to identify their specific needs and the difficulties faced using existing services.

We help Carers breakdown the barriers faced and help them continue to care.

For many Carers, the doctor’s surgery is the first place to go for help and support and CARES’ Primary Care Development Work helps Carers get the most from their GP and the best possible healthcare.

Working with doctors and other Primary Care staff, CARES aims to raise the awareness of Carers and Carers’ issues within Primary Care.
