Carers are invited to register with Pembrokeshire Carers Information & Support Service (PCISS) to benefit from any or all of the following:
Carers’ Gazette: A quarterly newsletter containing information and articles of interest to unpaid carers.
Carers’ Emergency Back-up Scheme: Carers carry a small card with a 24hr contact number to identify that they are a carer and ensure that the person they care for is not left unattended in the event of an emergency.
Carers’ Recognition Card: A card identifying the carrier as an unpaid carer and giving them access to discounts, such as the Pembrokeshire Passport to Leisure scheme which enables carers to use their local leisure centre at a reduced rate.
Carers’ Outreach Service: Offering a wide range of information to carers on an individual basis, advising them of their rights and signposting them to other sources of support. Face-to-face appointments can be arranged in the community or at home.
Carers’ Drop-In Centre: Carers are welcome to call in to our Carers Centre at 37 Merlins Hill, Haverfordwest for information, a cup of tea and a chat. 9-5 Monday to Friday.
Carers’ Events: Providing a number of free events for Carers throughout the year, including Carers Week in June and Carers Rights Day in November.
