Support For Carers

Are You a Carer?

If so please let us know – we may be able to help you.

We support carers by providing information and contact points, being as flexible as possible with appointments and by offering a free annual healthcheck and a flu jab.

We work closely with Gloucestershire Carers Hub Telephone 0300 111 9000 or visit their website:

There is a wealth of information on the NHS website about carers and caring. Below are some links into the site that we hope you will find useful.

  • Telling people
    • Caring responsibilities can make it difficult to maintain friendships or develop new ones. Telling your friends you’re a carer is important so they understand and can support you.
  • Taking a break
    • Caring for someone can be a full-time job, but it’s essential that you take time out for yourself too. Read our guide to accessing breaks and respite.
  • Housing and carers
    • Do you know your tenancy rights as a carer? Are you aware of all your care at home options? Do you need tips on moving someone around the home?
