Don’t know who to turn to?

 

Although carers can visit or telephone the centre between  9 am – 5 pm Monday – Friday, we also now have a telephone helpline between  5 – 9 pm. This.  The evening helpline is available to support any carers between these hours, however, it has been set up primarily to ensure that working carers are able to access support at times outside of normal working hours  You can phone this helpline if:

You want to register with our service for more in-depth support

You need a listening ear to discuss your caring role

You simply want to find out more about what our service has to offer

You want help in identifying, and the co-ordination of support, between several agencies

 

If any apply to you please do not hesitate to contact us on 01254 688440 – This is the same number as during the day but will transfer after 5pm to our helpline
