About the Service
About the Organisation
One in eight adults in Britain is a carer. Many juggle work and other commitments along with their caring role, and most do not realise the range of services available to help them.
A carer can be anyone, of any age, who provides unpaid help to family or friends who would not be able to manage without their support.
This could be caring for a relative, parent, child, partner or friend who is frail, has a physical or mental illness, disability or problem with drugs or alcohol. Becoming a carer can happen to anyone, from any background or culture, at any time.
Services we provide are:
- Help to have a break
- Emotional support
