Do you look after someone who couldn’t manage without you?

20th February 2020, 3:19pm | By David |

Illness, disability, old age; there are many reasons why three in five of us will look after a loved one and become unpaid carers at some point in our lives.

Carer Support Wiltshire, a local charity that supports unpaid carers, are currently looking for feedback on their support groups and cafes. So if you either already attend or are looking after someone and would be interested in the support that’s available please spare 5 minutes of your time to complete their short survey.

Take the survey now

Becoming a carer can affect personal finances, social life, education and employment, and general health and well-being. Find out more about how Carer Support Wiltshire can support you in your caring role www.carersupportwiltshire.co.uk or call 0800 181 4118.
