Gloucestershire Carers' Hub | People Plus

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.

It was a pleasure and joy to be involved in such a successful health event which I feel was very effective in enabling service users to gain information and raise awareness of the local services and support available for them. It was very well organised and run – so very well done!
