If you look after a friend or family member, who relies on your support to manage their daily life, you are a Carer. We can offer free and confidential support and we are here to help you.

Information Advice & Guidance Service

We can provide information advice and guidance to enable carers to feel more knowledgeable and confident about their caring role and the person they care for. Support is available to help carers understand and access their rights and entitlements and ensure that they have the information they need to make choices and decisions about access to additional support if they need it.

Carer Learning

Carer Learning is available to help Carers feel more able to undertake their role and feel better equipped to do so. The sessions will improve understanding of the support that is available, help to increase confidence, support Carers’ physical and emotional wellbeing and reduce isolation.
We know that the current situation with Coronavirus is putting even more pressure on you in your caring role, so would like to offer you the opportunity to learn mindfulness skills to help you through this period. Please see our Mindfulness for Beginners leaflet.
