This form is for carers who provide regular unpaid care to an adult who is ill, frail or living with a disability. As a carer you may be looking after your partner, a relative, friend or neighbour. This could be either in your own home or elsewhere. This form is also for people with parental responsibility for a disabled child.
This form is to register carers on the Carers Register. Haringey Council keeps a Carers Register so we can plan services for carers better. By keeping a Register we can get to know more about carers in Haringey and take their needs into account when planning and delivering services.
We will add your details to the Carers Register and send you an information pack.
If you have told us that you would like to be contacted about having a Carer's Assessment, the Integrated Access Team will contact you to discuss this.
Registered carers can apply for an Advantage Card which gives free admission to all Haringey Leisure Centres when supporting the person they look after to use the facilities.
Carers on the Register qualify for Advantage + admission rates (around 25 percent off standard prices, subject to availability) when using sport and leisure facilities by themselves.
Registered carers are also entitled to a 10 percent discount rate on courses run by Haringey Adult Learning Service (HALS). Haringey’s Carers Emergency Alert Card, which will identify you as a carer in the event of an accident and trigger back up cover, is available free to registered carers.
If you have agreed to your GP knowing that you are a carer, we will inform him/her. If you have agreed for information to be shared with the person you care for, this will happen in the course of a discussion, assessment or review of your needs and the needs of the person you care for. If you do not want us to share your information, please say so on the form.
More general information, such as numbers of carers and the type of support needs carers have identified, may be used by other Council departments and the Health Authority to help plan services. All personal information about you is protected under the Data Protection Act, 1998.
Under the Data Protection Act, 1998 you are entitled to know what personal social care information Haringey Council holds about you.
