Carer's Support image Carer's Support

  • Across the UK today 6.5 million people are Carers, supporting a loved one who is older, disabled or seriously ill.

    That’s 1 in 8 adults who care, unpaid, for family and friends.

    A Carer is someone who provides unpaid help and support on a regular basis to a relative, neighbour or friend who is unable to manage at home due to age, a long term health condition or disability.

    There is a local Carers Group for those who are caring for loved ones with mental health issues that meets on the fourth Thursday of each month at the Methodist Church in Newton Abbot.

    If you know of a Carer (including young people) who needs help, please contact us.
