You don't know what you don't know

We speak to local people every day about the help and support that is available both nationally and locally to help keep them happy, healthy and well.  

Many local people have told us that they are unsure what is available to help them so from September 2018 our Bi monthly newsletters we include a new feature to try and help.

The information we provide will be expanded on in the page so feel free to sign up today to receive your free copy by post or email.

Newsletter feature January/February 2019

I’m not a carer...am I?

You are a carer if you provide unpaid necessary care by looking after an ill, frail or disabled family member, friend or a child who could not manage without your support.

The care you provide can be practical, personal, emotional or supervisory. If you help with bathing, toileting, grocery shopping, paying bills, doctors appointments or just being there on the other end of the phone for reassurance you are a carer.

Help is available for you as a carer. Contact your local carers support service for information and support.
