Carer support services

To access free support and information, carers should contact their local carers support service. Support services are commissioned by your local authority, although they may provide these services through a third party – often a carer support charity.

Carers Trust

Carers Trust is a national charity, working with independent carers centres, Crossroads Care schemes and young carers services, to provide information, advice and practical support to all carers across the UK.
Carers can register with Carers Trust to receive their newsletter, join online carer chat forums and access information about support.
