Gloucestershire Carers’ Hub
We are commissioned by Gloucestershire County Council and NHS Gloucestershire Clinical Commissioning Group , offering a free service for carers to access when they need support from April 2019.
Who is a Carer?
A carer is someone of any age who provides unpaid support to family or friends who could not manage without this help. This could be caring for a relative, partner, a child or friend who is ill, frail, disabled or has mental health or substance misuse problems. Anyone can become a carer; carers come from all walks of life, all cultures and can be of any age. Caring may be sudden and unexpected or could be developed over a period of time. A caring role may last a few months or years but for some it may last for the rest of their lives.
