If you’re looking after someone who could not manage without your help due to a physical or mental health problem, learning disability, dementia, alcohol or substance mis-use then you are a carer. On our carers hub you:
- Will find information and advice to help you
- Can register as a carer for updates
- Can complete a carers assessment to help us point you in the direction of support in your caring role.
In North Somerset, the Carers Support Alliance provides support to both young and adults carers to enable them to continue caring whilst supporting them to have a life of their own, outside of their caring role.
Unpaid carers in North Somerset can now access a FREE online application called Rally Round that can make life much easier to manage. Rally Round lets you set up and invite people to join an online network of support to which you can post tasks that they can then offer to do for you. It’s the perfect way for people who want to help to get involved. It lets you ask for help without feeling awkward.
Just click on this link www.rallyroundme.com/n-somerset and watch the short video to find out more.
