Hft’s Family Carer Support Service (FCSS) is a free national service for family carers who have a relative with a learning disability. It supports them by providing one-to-one support by telephone, letter or email, providing workshops about issues affecting family carers, developing family carer resources and updating family carers about issues and legislation that affect them. The FCSS also works with different organisations and government bodies to develop support and resources and ensure a voice for family carers in policy development. The FCSS works in partnership with Hft Support Workers who are working with family carers.
