Caring will affect us all at some point in our lives. We’ll be here for you when that happens. With your help, they can be there for the 6,000 people who start looking after someone each day. They give expert advice, information and support.

Caring can be extremely complicated. The maze of rights and entitlements can be complicated. Filling in paperwork can be complicated. Getting a break can be complicated. Our feelings about caring can certainly be complicated.

Carers UK said we’re here to make sure that no matter how complicated your query or your experience, you don’t have to care alone. 

Their expert telephone advice and support service is here if you want to talk about caring. If you’re looking for answers, our online information and support is the best place to start.

Carer Support Eden

Carer Support Eden – Is a charity providing free confidential support and advice to those who care.  It provides support and information including the opportunity to meet other Carers for social activities. 

More information about Carer Support Eden is available on the website: or give the office a call on 01768 890280 for a friendly chat about what’s available.

Carer Support Eden say – ‘Our Hubs’ are small informal groups where Carers can meet with others who are in a similar situation to share the challenges and rewards of caring. They take place in relaxed, friendly and supportive environments and are run by either a member of staff or a trained Carer Support Eden volunteer. Our Hubs are an ideal way for carers to socialise and make friends with others who understand the demands of a Caring role. There are no requirements to book in advance or attend regularly, carers can just come along as and when it suits and they will always be made to feel welcome. Our ‘Talks for Carers’ are held monthly in our offices and can also be accessed remotely, we will be planning the topics on a month by month basis moving forward throughout the year. These talks will be delivered by various guest speakers and cover a diverse range of topics that we hope our carers find interesting or beneficial to  their caring role.
