New website
This site is new and we are improving it every day.


A carer is someone who looks after and supports a friend, relative or neighbour who could not manage without their help. If you care for someone, you are entitled to information and support.

You can find information on:

  • carer's assessments
  • carer's breaks
  • voluntary organisations that can help carers
  • what to do when someone dies

Learn more about support for carers

Why information is on a different website
We are in the process of adding information to this new unitary council website. Some pages will give you a link back to a previous council website to help you find what you need. Read more about the changes.
