Main Services Provided

We are Clare Forsythe and Patricia McCrink Carer Coordinators for the Southern Health and Social Care Trust. Our role is to support the Trust in developing and
implementing its Carer Strategy.
We support the role of Carers in the Southern area by actively identifying your
needs and developing services and actions to address these with the support of the
Trust Directorates and staff teams.
We have lead role in supporting the work streams of the Trust Carer’s Reference
group who discuss how they will fulfil the aims of the Caring for Carer’s Strategy.
An action plan is put in place on an annual basis to address priority areas as
highlighted in the strategy to support Carers.
We liaise closely with Carer’s groups and Carer’s organisations and other Voluntary
organisations who provide support to Carers and together we work in partnership to
ensure that all Carers are provided with the support and care that they need to
remain in the caring role.
There are opportunities for you to have your say and become a voice for change for
Carers in the Southern Area. Become involved, and be part of the shaping of
services, ensuring that they are delivered in a manner which best supports Carers.
Without you making your voice heard, professionals have no way of knowing what
needs to change, or what is being done well.
For more information about becoming involved, or about Carers issues in general
please do not hesitate to contact us
