Our Local Charity Partner
We partner one local charity for a 3 year period, to help build a more effective relationship and understanding of their needs. With effect from the 1st July 2019, our chosen local partner is Carers Careline.
Carers Careline was established in March 1988. Its aim is to promote the health, mental and emotional wellbeing of adult carers, especially the elderly, in the local community through the identification of hidden carers, early intervention, preventative action and pastoral care. Over the years Carers Careline services have expanded and now offers monthly support groups in Redditch (including one for male carers), information and signposting, social events and activities, pro-active telephone support, a drop in facility, a counselling service and bereavement support on the loss of a loved one.
The charity offers help and support to any carer over the age of 18 years. With an ever ageing population many people find themselves exchanging the role of caring for their children to that of caring for their parents – sometimes both at the same time.
Today, after many years of service to carers in the local community, Carers Careline is justifiably proud of its record and subject to funding being available, hopes to continue in the same vein for many years to come.
