Well Charles47, no they don't have the good sense to recognise me as a carer. I received the phone call today and they still won't support me! They are only funded for unpaid carers and she said something about it's in their service level agreement??!! So that was that, as I said PRESTON CARERS CENT...
Hi again, Well Charles47 I decided to ring the Carers Centre and inform them how unhappy and rejected I felt after being turned away by them.

I bought him some toy mice today and he's never stopped playing with them, up until now when he ...
Hi folks, Well guess the latest news?? I was informed by my Area Social Services Manager that I could go down to my local carer's centre and get lots of support from them and I even might be eligible for their 'time to care for me' grant.

Hi Caring Mind and Coffeeholic, Thanks for your replies. Pester is my middle name from now on, I WILL pester until I'm blue in the face!! It's Tuesday today so I'm still awaiting a phone call from my 'new' social worker, as I said in a previous post, I'm impatient!! The 'Crisis Team' are still calli...
