A vital new service to help more than 36,000 carers in Southampton went live on 1 September 2014. The Carers in Southampton project aims to help these unsung heroes, 48 per cent of who spend more than 20 hours a week looking after a family member, a friend, or a neighbour without pay, and to identify the many more who currently do not use services within the city.
If you feel this could be you or someone you know, Carers In Southampton is here to help.
Drop in to the relaxed resource centre to find out more:
Meon House, Rear of 189 Portswood Road, Southampton, SO17 2NF
A comprehensive and interactive website is currently in development, however you can read an overview of the service and its aims on the holding page.
