Free support & information for Carers just like you.

Who cares for the carers? We do.

Caring for another person is very rewarding, but can be overwhelming and lonely at times.

Who can use the service?

You can receive support from Somerset Carers for free if are over 18 and you look after someone in an ‘unpaid’ caring capacity (not employed or self employed as a Carer).

The person you look after could be a loved one, friend, partner, parent or child (it doesn’t matter if they are under or over 18) on a regular or irregular basis.

We will do our utmost to ensure you receive the right support you need in your day-to-day life, by working with healthcare providers, and other local services to create a tailored, integrated package of care that works for you.
