The Carers Centre is a community resource dedicated to the support of carers in the city of Portsmouth.
We are a one stop shop for carers, offering a variety of support, including emotional support, carers breaks, sitting service, cooking sessions, training, carers groups, support for young carers and adult mental health carers, as well as volunteering opportunities.
We have a wealth of information within the building, and members of staff who have a wide knowledge of services in the local area. Anyone can drop in to the centre during opening hours. Or you can make an appointment if you prefer.
Carers Centre staff and volunteers are regularly present and able to meet you at out-stations throughout the city, which may be closer to your home (GP surgeries, pharmacies, Healthy Living Centre, St Mary's Hospital etc). We have a dedicated team at Queen Alexandra Hospital, so you may ask your nurse or doctor to contact them if you or the person you look after is at the hospital.
If your caring role, work or family commitments don’t allow you to visit us during the week we’d be happy to see you on Saturday, when we're open for Carers Café. Why not come and see us, try our delicious coffee and homemade cakes, and speak to staff and carer volunteers?
In exceptional circumstances, if you are not able to leave your home, we can make a home visit - please contact us to find out more.
