Who cares for the carers? We do.
There are over 60,000 unpaid Carers in Somerset. If you regularly look after someone in an unpaid capacity, Somerset Carers can support you with advice and guidance.
The person you care for maybe your partner, parent, child, friend or neighbour – we are here to support you, the Carer, if you are over 18 years old, no matter how formal or informal your caring arrangement.
How can they help?
Caring for another person is very rewarding, but can be overwhelming and lonely at times. Somerset Carers can help link you to groups & events in your area, to find information & support agencies that will help you and the person you are caring for with their particular needs. They can offer guidance with financial assistance, benefit entitlements, and often are at local Carers Groups.
With free advice and support specific for your unique situation, our Carers Agents are on hand to help and guide you.
