Free Support & Services for Carers

Carers are family, friends or neighbours who help someone with some aspect of daily living because they are ill, frail or have a physical, sensory or learning disability. This can be personal care, practical help like shopping and household tasks or just emotional support.

Our Services

Carers Emergency Contingency Plan & Card Scheme to ensure replacement care or family/friends are contacted if a Carer has an emergency.

Volunteer Sitting Service – Volunteers will sit with the cared-for so Carers can have a break e.g. go shopping, go to an appointment or use Carers services (no personal care provided).

Groups of Carers meet regularly in Barrow.

Contact with others in a similar caring role.

Referrals to other agencies that may be able to offer support.
