Digital tools to support carers

Free digital resource for carers in Berkshire

There is an online resource for carers in Berkshire to support them in their caring role. It is free to use and includes specially tailored Apps, guides and training courses:

  • jointly - a mobile App to help make caring a bit easier, less stressful and more organised
  • About Me - an e-learning course for carers that aims to help build resilience for caring
  • Upfront Guide to Caring - this is an online assessment tool that directs carers to specific sections of Carers UK's website for information relevant to their situation, and then produces a short action plan to help carers plan their next steps.

For access, create an account on carersuk. Professionals can also access the digital service by following the same registration process for carers.

This has been funded by the six Berkshire local authorities; Bracknell Forest, Reading, Slough, West Berkshire, Windsor and Maidenhead.
