The service will have a slightly different title - Warwickshire Carers Wellbeing Service. As the current Guideposts staff team will be transferring to Carers Trust both carers and professionals will receive the same high level of support as is currently provided.
In the interim period Guideposts and Carers Trust Heart of England are working together to ensure that there is a smooth transition to the new service. This includes transfer of carers’ data in accordance with the Data Protection Act
Guideposts has been an integral part of the service provided to carers across Warwickshire for seven years and has built up many positive partnerships with a wide range of professionals in health, social care and voluntary sectors. The Carers Trust Heart of England are keen to preserve these partnerships and the staff team are looking forward to building on these and combining the knowledge and strengths of both organisations
Carers Trust Heart Of England was formed in June 2015 by the merger of the two main organisations providing support for family carers in Coventry for over 40 years- Coventry Carers’ Centre and Crossroads Care, and as such have a wealth of experience to bring to Warwickshire. The new contract is an opportunity to take the service forward with an experienced and dedicated team supported by a well established and respected organisation.
There will be a worker supporting carers in each of the five districts of Warwickshire and Guideposts Carer Support Workers will continue to be responsible for their current areas so their knowledge of the area and relationships they have formed with you will be maintained. There will be a slight change in title to Carer Wellbeing Worker.
