Carers Information

Carers Information

Carers say that access to information, financial support and breaks in caring are vital in helping them manage the impact of caring on their lives.

The Carers Information Service provides free and confidential information, advice and support to Carers. We produce and distribute information for carers and organise regular events in partnership with other organisations.

The service is joint funded by Carmarthenshire County Council and Hywel Dda University Health Board.

Carmarthenshire Carers Information Service, in partnership with Carmarthenshire County Council, would be very grateful if carers would take some time to complete the survey’s that are below so that we can gather evidence from carers on what is important to them. The results of the survey will help us to shape future service design and delivery.

Outreach Service

The outreach service can help carers to optimise their quality of life and well-being to enable them to continue to be effective in their caring role as long as that is right for the individual.

Our team of Carers Outreach Workers are experienced in providing one-to-one support to carers and have up-to-date information about the range of support services for carers and the people they care for.

The service covers the whole of Carmarthenshire and appointments can be made at your home or at an alternative venue.
