Working together to help carers

How we help carers

We offer a wide range of free services to support people who are caring for their loved ones in Bath and North East Somerset.

Caring responsibilities often impact many areas of a person's life. We offer a holistic approach to help support their health, wellbeing and connection to others. 

We help people of all ages access the support they deserve, including children and young people.

How we help professionals

Do you work in education, health and social care or another sector where you have regular contact with unpaid carers? The Carers’ Centre not only helps the thousands of carers in Bath and North East Somerset, but we also support the professionals working alongside them. We offer professionals the following:

  • Bespoke carer awareness sessions for you and your staff
  • An annual conference for those in education to learn about the the needs of young carers and how to support them
  • Vital guidance and advice from our Carer Support team

If you want to enquire about any of these services please contact our Freephone Support Line on 0800 0388 885 or (Mon - Fri, 9am - 1pm).

Who we are

As well as working directly with carers, we are on hand to support the professionals who are often the first response in a carer’s journey.

We are a local charity dedicated to supporting the thousands of unpaid carers across Bath and North East Somerset. We help carers of all ages, access one-to-one advice, support and respite from their role.

Helping people identify their caring role

People are providing more hours of unpaid care than ever before. Census 2021 data showed a significant rise (over a quarter of a million) in the number of unpaid carers providing 20+ hours of care. Delivering a substantial amount of care can have a devastating impact on many areas of someone's life like their health, wellbeing, finances and employment, and many do not access the support they are entitled to.

A key barrier to accessing this essential support is identification, by professionals and carers themselves. Those working in education, primary care and the third sector have an opportunity to help them recognise the gravity of their role and how to access support.
