Improving Lives Plymouth - Caring for Carers

At Caring for Carers we understand how difficult looking after someone can be and we’re here to help. 
If you’re over 18 and look after a partner, family member, or friend with an illness or disability, you can ask for a carer’s assessment to look at how caring affects you and the sort of help you need.

We support carers through the provision of:

• Information and Advice 

• Drop-in/Support Groups

• Leisure and Social Activities 

• Workshops/Training

• Carers Card Discounts

• Regular Newsletters
