Are you a Carer?
A carer is someone who, without payment, provides care and support to a partner, disabled child, relative friend or neighbour who could not manage without their help.
If you’re not sure where to turn and which services you need we can give you lots of information and advice on what is out there to help support you and the person you care for. We also offer support with accessing the relevant welfare benefits, taking a break, grants to help fund essential items and transport costs, help with completing forms such as blue badge and Council Tax reductions and we also offer a free counselling service to Carers if you need extra support around your caring role. We have support groups and events that give you the opportunity to meet other Carers and have some time-out and often run training courses and wellbeing days!
Call us on 0300 030 1215 to find out more.
