Poole Communities Trust is supporting Carers Week. We know from local people that there are many carers in Poole.


Who is a Carer?

A carer is someone who provides  unpaid support to family or friends who could not manage without help. This could be due to illness, mental ill-health, disability, or a substance misuse problem.


Carers Information Service

The Carers Information Service supports family/unpaid carers looking after someone who would not be able to manage without their support. Join the Carers Information Service to keep up to date with all the local events, training courses and more. It’s quick, easy and FREE to join.
