Objectives

We support unpaid carers in Mid Devon young and adult. In the case of young carers we offer respite through monthly club nights in three locations in our area and outings to places of interest and entertainment also once a month. For adult carers we offer advice, bereavement counselling, 1:1 volunteer support and above all companionship to which we can add a number of support groups where carers can meet in a relaxed atmosphere to explore mutual circumstances and problems.

Activities

For young carers we supply activities as described above. For adult carers we try to offer whatever is need to improve the quality of life of carers often stuck in lonely and isolated places with little chance of getting out.
