Supporting carers in Wiltshire.
Three in five of us will be unpaid carers at some point in our lives. Becoming a carer can happen at any time and the impact is huge with many often experiencing isolation, loss of employment, health concerns and financial difficulties.
Carer Support Wiltshire helps carers to access support, services, education and training, and breaks from their caring role. We ensure carers in Wiltshire have a voice in policy making and planning for services and we work with health and social care professionals and employers to develop best practice.
Our aim is to create carer friendly communities where carers are recognised, valued and supported.
A carer is anyone who cares, unpaid, for a family member or friend who cannot manage without their support. They might look after someone with a physical disability, long term health condition, mental health issues or a problem with substance misuse. There are over 47,000 carers in Wiltshire.
If you look after someone who couldn’t manage without your help please get in touch. Our friendly team can offer emotional support, one-to-one advice and help with accessing the information and services that are relevant to you. We also offer complementary therapies, support groups, training opportunities and much more.
