Birmingham Carers Hub will be Closed on Monday 19 September
With the announcement that Monday 19 September will be Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral and a bank holiday, we will be joining the country in mourning.
Our office and telephone lines will be closed all day and our telephone lines will re-open at 8.45am on Tuesday 20 September. Our website of course is always available for advice and information.
Birmingham City Council’s Adult Social Care Service will not be operational on Monday 19 September. If there is a need for emergency support, call the Out of Hours Team on 0121 464 9001.
If you have already registered with our Carers Emergency Response Service (CERS), emergency support is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and can provide support for up to 48 hours (72 hours on Bank Holidays), after which, longer term care can be arranged if necessary.
If you would like to register with CERS, call 0121 442 2960.
