Self Review From
This is our TCC Self Review Form_Fillable Form. Self reviews are an opportunity to do some self reflection and to be honest with yourself. This can be just for yourself, to reflect on how things are going recently or it can be an opportunity to reach out to Trafford Carers Centre and have a chat with us if you haven’t been in touch for a while. If you need help or feel as though you’re struggling, we will be happy to give you a call.
How it works:
- Click on the hyperlink above and start filling out the form.
- When completed, save the document on your laptop or computer. Save it in a place where you can reach it again, like your desktop or documents.
- Attach the document to an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
- Send the email.
Please be aware:
- This form should only be completed by a carer who is registered with Trafford Carers Centre and has not had any contact from a caseworker for at least three months and only if your care role has changed.
- If you are not a registered unpaid carer but would like support because you are caring for someone living in Trafford please register using the self referral form online and a caseworker will aim to contact you within a 2- 4 week period.
