Services for carers
As part of our offer of support for carers we have a range of services available free of charge.
Many of these services are provided by Devon Carers, an information and support service run by eight organisations working together to improve the quality of services for carers in Devon.
Call Devon Carers on 08456 434 435 to find out more about:
- the quarterly carers newsletter – a good source of local information which is automatically sent to every carer on the Devon Carers database and which is also available online
- a Carer Alert Card- a card you carry at all times to ensure the person you care for gets help if something unexpected happens to you
- local carer support groups and events for Northern, Southern and Eastern areas.
- local memory cafes for people affected by memory problems and their carers in Northern, Southern and Eastern areas.
If you decide to have a carers’ assessment which shows that you need social care services to support you, there will not be a charge for any services provided directly to you. We may need to review this in the future.
