Carers Support Groups


All the groups below are open to carers to attend. It is worth phoning the contact number for the group to check the details of the meeting before making a special journey. Most of the groups are informal, occasionally organise social events, welcome new members and most of the groups welcome ex-carers. Many carers value the chance to share their knowledge and experience with other people in similar situations.

If you are a carer and you cannot find a group to suit you, please contact the

Carers Development Worker on 01437 771196
