How can the internet support carers?

Nearly nine in 10 carers find it difficult to leave their home1 due to their caring role, so the internet has a very valuable role to play in providing access to services and support to those who have difficulty accessing them in the offline world, particularly as over 98%2 of carers mainly access the internet from home.

The Trust, together with Crossroads Care, have carried out research into the way that carers use the internet and published a report aimed at organisations and local authorities who are looking at how the internet can be used to reach and support more carers. The report contains a detailed exploration of the advantages and challenges of providing carer support online, as well as the pros and cons for the main types of web services that are currently being offered.

Read the executive summary of the report.

How will this guide help?

  1. Offers advice and direction on the creation and expansion of websites and other online services for carers, based on the experiences of providers and the views of carers themselves.
  2. Includes information about barriers to accessing the internet and suggestions on how to overcome these issues
This project, funded by the Department of Health, included research into existing evidence, discussions with organisations already providing carer services online and focused research (online and face-to-face) with more than 400 carers or former carers.

sun logoCaring for a loved one is often a lonely task because of the many hours spent caring, along with having little money or support.
Carers Allowance is the lowest benefit there is, and there are many carers who do not even realize they are a carer.
Most carers are unable to leave the house due to not being able to leave the person they care for on their own, which can obviously leave the carer feeling isolated.  Because of this many carers feel depressed or have a lack of self worth.

We at Computers4Carers understand these issues, which is why our unpaid staff campaign to give the carer a window to the outside world - a free laptop, if they live in Norfolk and are in receipt of benefits and do not have any access to the internet.
The carer then can get shopping on line, do banking, access services and find support but most of all make friends.
