A new partnership providing support to unpaid carers in Wiltshire

Carers Together Wiltshire Logo webWe’re delighted to be part of a new partnership providing tailored support to unpaid carers across Wiltshire.
 
Citizens Advice Wiltshire is working with Age UK Wiltshire, Alzheimer’s Support, Community First, Wessex Community Action and Wiltshire Service Users Network, under the umbrella ‘Carers Together Wiltshire’. 
 
The partnership, led by Age UK Wiltshire, will provide a range of support services to people caring for someone in an informal unpaid capacity, often a family member but sometimes a friend or neighbour.

Caring for another person can be rewarding but also challenging. When you’re caring for someone else, it can be easy to overlook your own needs. 
 
There are currently thousands of individuals identified as carers in Wiltshire. Carers Together Wiltshire aims to ensure that unpaid carers can achieve a healthy balance between their caring responsibilities and personal lives.
 
The charities will work together to offer much-needed practical and emotional support to unpaid carers and provide opportunities for respite from caring duties.
