Carers Lead Organisation - Carer Support Dorset

A new service to help those caring for people across Dorset launched on 21 November 2019.

Carer Support Dorset has been established to give information, advice and support to all age, unpaid carers across the county where the person cared for is over 18.

In response to feedback from carers over the last few years, Carer Support Dorset was established to provide a central point of contact, whether by phone or through the website. Carer Support Dorset will be able to signpost or refer onto a wide range of existing support available for carers. This could include issuing a carers discount card, local carers’ cafes, funding streams and referring to funded services from the local authority through a carers assessment.

Carer Support Dorset covers the whole of Dorset and offers a Freephone number (0800 368 8349) with a friendly team at the end of the line ready to support you, as well as extensive information on the website www.carersupportdorset.co.uk.
