Signal for carers


SIGNAL is run by local charity The Ark Trust CIO, and is funded by Bracknell Forest Council and East Berkshire Clinical Commissioning Group.  SIGNAL provides the following free services for unpaid (non-professional) or informal carers who care for someone in Bracknell Forest;

Listening, encouragement and emotional support to help you and directing you to the services you need to help in your caring role. We have also been making regular phone calls to isolated carers during the pandemic.
Through newsletters, email bulletins or social media.
For example; helping to complete forms or emergency planning.
Meeting other carers at support groups, lunches or virtually.
We can provide more detailed information and advice on local services and topics such as the Mental Capacity Act or Continuing Health Care.
We provide some training to help you fulfil your caring role e.g. first aid.

SIGNAL’s community workers can provide advice and guidance over the telephone, via email, a home visit or from our offices in North Ascot (subject to Government restrictions during the pandemic). Our office is open 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday. Please book an appointment in advance with our community workers.
