Are you looking after someone in Devon?
Devon Carers is an information and support service run by six organisations working together to improve the quality of services for all unpaid carers in Devon.
The partnership encourages unpaid carers to take a first step towards getting support by giving them a call on 03456 434 4351. The helpline is open from 8am to 6pm from Monday to Friday. It also opens on Saturday from9am to 1pm.
Benefits to carers include: a regular newsletter with information about events, groups and training in your area and contact with an advice worker. You can also get help with respite from your caring role. A great service is the Carer Alert Card that ensures the person you are looking after gets help is something unexpected happens to you.
