The Carers Emergency Scheme (CES)
Do you care for someone? What would happen if you got caught in a emergency?
For comments / feedback please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Carers nominate two contacts (for example, family members, friends or neighbours) who would be willing to check on the person being looked after if the carer is unable to due to an accident, emergency or illness. They will be contacted by the provider if an emergency occurs.
If Level 1 won’t be enough to cover the needs of the person being cared for, Level 2 gives the added option of having a support worker within two hours of the emergency call being made. If the emergency lasts longer than 48 hours (72 hours over a bank holiday) then other arrangements will be made, working with the council.
