PRESS RELEASE

For immediate release

Carers lose specialist support in Bromley
14th September 2017

Carers Bromley, the local charity, has lost the funding it needs to support unpaid carers in Bromley. Based in St Mary Cray, the charity has been operating for 26 years and supported 5,500 carers of all ages in 2016/7, including some as young as 4 years old.

Carers Bromley’s Chief Executive, Lynne Powrie, said that “the new commissioning model pursued by Bromley Council and the CCG resulted in unsustainable funding cuts which meant we simply could not deliver all the necessary services needed by carers. Whilst Carers Bromley understands the pressure on Council funding, the new commissioning model has added a costly, additional layer of bureaucracy that takes money away from frontline services. The much-reduced funding to support carers will now go to Bromley Third Sector Enterprises (BTSE), a local partnership of other charities”.

Disability Benefits Survey

A student at the University of Liverpool is conducting research on the impact of welfare reforms on informal carers who care for someone who either claims or has claimed UK disability benefits until they were reassessed.  
This involves an online survey which takes about 5-10 minutes to complete.  The study has been ethically approved, and is completely anonymous.
