ABOUT US

What we do

There are over 47,000 unpaid carers in Wiltshire. 2,700 of them are young adult carers aged between the age of 16 and 25 who look after siblings or parents.  We help them to access support, services, education and training, and breaks from their caring role. We ensure carers 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 services cover the whole of Wiltshire (excluding Swindon) and are available to anyone who is aged 16 or over. We can also provide support to people caring for someone in Wiltshire who does not live in the county themselves or those registered at a GP surgery funded by the NHS Wiltshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG).

We are proud to be a network partner of the Carers Trust – the leading national charity for carers in the UK.
