Carers Gloucestershire is an independent, carer-led charity striving for a better life for carers. We believe that no-one should have to face the challenge of caring alone.

If you provide unpaid support and care to someone who could not manage without your help, then you are a carer. Sometimes caring responsibilities will appear suddenly when someone is taken ill, or they may evolve slowly, as a parent or spouse develops age-related conditions.  Carers Gloucestershire is a local charity where carers can seek help and support. Our vision is for a better life for carers where carers are fully-recognised, valued and supported in their caring role and as members of their community.

 

Our services include:

  • Hospital support.
  • Information, advice and guidance.
  • Emergency support.
  • Counselling.
  • Carer to carer support.
  • Time out for carers breaks.
  • Return to work or education support.
  • Carers assessments.
  • Learning and training.
  • Support groups.
  • Support for parents of children with special educational needs (SENDIASS).
  • Support for families of children and adults with challenging behaviour.
  • Carers’ voice, helping to influence policymaking and service planning.
