Specialist Services

As well as our universal Information, Advice and Support Service, we are able to offer some specialist services for carers.

Targeted Carer Support

Some carers have very specific needs or the nature of their caring role can mean that specialist knowledge is required. We have secured funding to support some specific groups of carers:

  • Carers of people with cancer
  • Carers of people with Mental ill health
  • Chinese Carers
  • Carers of people with dementia

Carer Emergency Card

The Carer Emergency card is for you to put in your purse or wallet in case something happens to you. The emergency services will then know you are a carer and take the appropriate action.

You can either contact us to post one out to you or click here to print your own.
