Description

We are sad to announce that our office at the Priory Campus is now closed. We are still very much working and are to support you in your role as unpaid Carer.

If you call the office, your call will be diverted to a staff member who will be on duty to help you with your query. You can call us on 01226 288772.

We appreciate that we are living in unprecedented times right now but we are here to support you.

You can also email us at BarnsleyCarers@makingspace.co.uk or find us on Facebook at Barnsley Carers Service.

We will post regular updates and information on our Facebook page and if you have an email address please let us know and we can send you information via email.

Please be assured that our team are here for you. We are working on new ways to keep you connected and we will ensure we keep in regular contact with you.

Take Care and Stay Safe

Do you care for a family member or a friend with symptoms of memory loss, dementia or short term memory loss?

We are here to support you to continue living an active and fulfilled life. Caring for a loved one often places physical and emotional demands on a carer, which can then take a toll on your own health and wellbeing. Our professional support workers are here to lighten the load, give you as much help and guidance as you need, and enable you to stay engaged with the community and involved in the activities you enjoy the most.

The service we offer Making Space Dementia Carers Outreach Support is free to carers in Barnsley.

We can:

  • Give you emotional support, provide support to remain both mentally and physically engaged
  • Offer information, advice and guidance to help you as a carer
  • Support you to enjoy your life outside of your caring role
  • Help enable you to fulfil your educational, employment and wellbeing potential 
  • Signpost other services and organisations that can help
  • Support you to communicate with health and wellbeing teams
  • Importantly, we also provide support to previous carers, helping you to re-engage with the community, your interests and your friends.

The Dementia Carers Outreach Support Service is not limited to carers only. We may also be able to support the person with memory loss or dementia, where a diagnosis exists and where the service believes its support may be helpful.

This venue is part of the Barnsley Safe Places Scheme.  For more information, visit https://www.safeplaces.org.uk/member-schemes/barnsley/bcvs-trading-priory/
