Carers Service

What does it do?

Our Carer Support Co-ordinators provide one to one support, across Cornwall. They can meet Carers in their own home or at another convenient location for the carer.
This free service aims to provide:

  • Information of services and support for the carer and cared for and assistance in accessing these services;
  • Relevant information related to the carer’s circumstances and condition of the cared for;
  • Access to local carers support groups;
  • Emotional support
