Support for carers

Carers are people from all walks of life who provide unpaid care and support to a relative, friend or neighbour who can’t manage without their help.

Most carers don’t label themselves 'carers' – they are husbands, wives, sons, daughters or friends who see that someone is struggling and do everything possible to help.

However, it is very common for people with caring responsibilities to neglect their own needs because they focus so much on helping the person they care for. If this sounds like you, we’re here to help.

What we offer

We provide a single point of contact for carers of any age to access the help and practical support that you need.

Our support workers work with you to identify problems related to your caring responsibilities and to find potential solutions to them. We can support you to have some time of your own, separate from your caring responsibilities, if this is what you want to do.

We deliver our carers support services in North Somerset in partnership with

  • Age UK Somerset
  • North Somerset Community Partnership

Our partnership is called 'The Carers Support Alliance'

Free online support

If your prefer not to contact us, all carers living in North Somerset can now access a FREE online service called Rally Round. This service makes it really easy for friends and family to come together to help a loved one stay safe and well at home. Get started now!
