Carers assessments

Adult Social Care in Camden is committed to supporting carers.  Carers are entitled to receive a free carers assessment.  Following an assessment, if a carer has eligible needs the council has a duty to meet the needs that have been identified. In Camden, we call carers assessments a carers conversation.

What is a carers assessment?As a carer, you have a right to have your needs considered. A carers assessment is:

  • to work out what can be done to make life easier for you
  • to consider whether your caring role impacts on your physical, emotional, and mental health, your work and social life
  • an opportunity for you to talk about what support or services you need.

If you and the person you care for agree, a combined assessment of both your needs can be undertaken at the same time.

Requesting a carers assessmentCarers assessments are provided by Camden Adult Social, or Camden Carers Services.
