The Carers Lounge
A family carer is anyone, of any age, who, unpaid and as part of their everyday life, helps an ill, frail or disabled relative or friend who could not manage without them.
Do you look after someone who can’t manage without you?
The Carers Lounge provides a confidential, safe environment to access information, advice and emotional support.
No appointment needed
Open Monday to Friday – 10am to 5pm
