Bringing carers and the carers service together as expert partners to ensure carers needs, wishes and feelings are at the heart of everything we do

Carer Champion Organisations

Brought to you by Sarah Newell, Service Development Coordinator

There are an estimated 16,000 Carers living within Blackburn with Darwen currently.  Around 4,000 of those are being supported by our service but we want ALL Carers to benefit from what we offer.  We are constantly looking at new ways we can reach people in a caring role that might not be aware of what we can do to support them.

We are now linking with a number of local businesses, organisations, service providers and working together, to identify people who have a caring role –  to ensure they receive our support.  They are currently:


Barclays Bank

Blackburn Fire & Rescue

Blackburn Rovers Indoor Centre (the BRIC)CB Partnerships

Crossroads East Lancashire

Choice Care

Chemist 2 Customer

Choice Mobility

Club Learning

Derwent Hall

East Lancashire Deaf Society Nursery

Elite Feet

GS Social Care Solutions

Lancashire Fire & Rescue

Lancashire Health & Wellbeing

Lloyds Bank Blackburn Branch

Merseycare NHS Foundation

We have received multiple referrals from these organisations and wish to thank the Champions for their support.
