What is a Carer?

A Carer is someone who, without payment, provides help and support to a partner, child, relative, friend or neighbour, who could not manage without their help.

This could be due to age, physical or mental illness, addiction or disability.

How can we help?

We have a range of support for Adult Carers around the county.

Initially, we will have a chat with you to understand your situation and any challenges you are facing, working with you to identify what support you might need.

We can speak to you in person, online or over the phone – however your feel more comfortable. Either way, we have secure systems and processes in place to keep your data private and confidential.
