Useful information for carers

Carers in Hertfordshire provides information and support to help you in your caring role.

This includes a range of factsheets for carers covering different subjects, these can be downloaded on our General Factsheets page.

We can also guide you through the Direct Payments system thanks to the film, above, made with Leonard Cheshire Disability Direct Payments Support Service. If you or the person you are caring for is eligible to receive services from Hertfordshire County Council to meet social care needs you may be able to buy these services directly. The film, Becoming an Employer, shows you how to go about this.
