North Somerset Carers Support is a service delivered by Alliance Homes, providing a wide range of community-based support for unpaid adult and young carers. Our support for adult carers includes brief intervention and support related to helping you in your caring role, information, advice and signposting, when needed, and a programme of therapeutic groups and drop in’s across the district. We have developed a range of ways for carers to stay connected through Social Media including Facebook groups and an Instagram page, and we provide a quarterly carers newsletter with lots of information about our support, along with wider information that is useful for carers. Through our Adult Carer service we also provide support for Young Adult Carers aged between 18 and 25.
Our Young Carers Service is provided to Carers aged under 18, we deliver welcome and therapeutic groups, information, guidance and signposting trips, activities and some residentials. All Young Carers receive an assessment of their caring role so that we understand their needs and how best to support them.
If you are a carer, and you want to find out what help is available for you, please contact North Somerset Carers support on 03000 120 120 (choose option 3).
