Group aims & activities
A carer is someone who looks after a partner, relative, friend, an older person or someone who has a disability or long term illness.
Caring for someone is not always easy which is why the Council and its partners have all come together at ‘Carers Corner’ to provide you with all the support you need under one roof.
At Carers Corner you can get face to face advice – such as how to access benefits or legal advice, along with how to access the Carers Emergency Scheme and Carers Assessments.
Carers Corner also provides meeting space which is used to hold a regular Carers Forum, where all carers come together to support each other by sharing real life experiences, to help you choose services which can best support your personal needs.
