Carer resources

We provide a range of essential information for carers about their role and how they can get the support they need. Take a look at what is available:

Carer Handbook

This is our main resource for carers and has a range of information for carers, friends and families of people who have used, are using or might use our services.

Young Carers Mental Health Information

We worked with young carers living in Hertfordshire to produce a new mental health booklet to help young people get the right information if they are caring for a loved one who has a mental health issue.

Common Sense Confidentiality

This details the ways that we expect our staff to behave to ensure that carers receive as much information as possible to support them in their caring role.

HPFT Carer Strategy 2013-2018

Our commitment to carers is built on the principles of the Triangle of Care. This triangle brings together carers, service users and professionals. It promotes safety and recovery for people with mental health issues as well as encouraging their wellbeing by supporting their carers. This is the model that should underpin your support from us. 

Care Act 2014

This gives full details of the Care Act 2014 and why it is important to carers.  This section also includes an explanatory video.
