Who are they?

Carers in Southampton is a free service for adult informal carers who give their time, unpaid, to look after a family member, friend or neighbour with additional support needs.

The service is funded by Southampton City Council to manage statutory carers assessments.  These identify needs and determine eligibility to receive specific services and a discretionary personal budget.  Carers in Southampton also provide support and relevant information to informal carers.

What about me?  I'm a young carer.

Young carers: Carers in Southmpton work with No Limits to provide the Young Carers Service for a smooth transition into the adult carer support service where needed.  Phone: 023 8022 4224 Email: enquiries@nolimitshelp.org.uk
