Many carers find that it is useful to talk about their caring role. It doesn't matter who you support and why they need that support. It could be a child with additional needs, an older relative or a friend - the Carers Service is here to support all carers. The person you look after doesn't need a formal diagnosis and you don’t need to be claiming carers allowance to use the service.
The team is based at the Carers Centre. We start with a conversation to understand your situation and help you to work out what type of support might help. Carers often find it useful to get information and advice, support to have a break or just to have a listening ear.
You can drop in, call, e-mail or use Facebook Messenger - whatever is most convenient.
