Carers’ Information and Support Service move to Calvert Centre

 

The Carers’ Information and Support Service (CISS) has relocated its offices to the Calvert Centre on Calvert Lane from King Edward Street in Hull.

Service manager Mike Johnson explained that the move is intended to help the team find ‘hidden’ carers in their own communities, rather than having a central base. “We asked all the people who use our service how they felt about the relocation and most were very positive,” he said.

“We can now offer 19 locations across the city for carers to access help and support. People will be able to come to the service in their local areas in places like community centres, GP practices, Dove House Hospice and the Freedom Centre.”

The phone number for CISS hasn’t changed and you can contact the service on 01482 222220 or email chcp.carersinfo@nhs.net. The offices at the Calvert Centre are open 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday.
