Emergency Planning

This gives you access to documents produced by Enable, it talks you through "Who will pick up the pieces when you can’t be there?"

An emergency plan is a plan you set out for the care of an adult or a child in case of emergencies. It makes provisions for occasions when you are unable to fulfil your caring role, and it sets out the practical arrangements for short-term, unplanned periods.

Having a plan in place can stop an emergency becoming a crisis and can give you and the person you care for peace of mind. Emergency planning is relevant to all carers, irrespective of the age of the carer, the age of the person they care for or the health needs or disability the cared-for person has.

An example of an Emergency Plan can be found here

VAS can help you complete the plan. Please contact us to send you out a pack or talk through the toolkit if you are happy to use the online version.

Carers UK have also put together some information on what you might need to consider which can be found here
