About Caring for Carers

Caring for Carers is a partnership between Improving Lives Plymouth and Age UK Plymouth.  We understand how difficult looking after someone can be and we’re here to help.

If you’re over 18 and look after a partner, family member, or friend with an illness or disability, you can ask for a carer’s assessment to look at how caring affects you and the sort of help you need.

Do you look after someone who couldn’t manage without your help?

We support carers through the provision of:

• Information and Advice 

• Drop-in/Support Groups

• Leisure and Social Activities 

• Workshops/Training

• Carers Card Discounts

• Regular Newsletters

Opening Times

Monday - Friday 9.00am - 5.00pm

We are closed on all Bank Holidays and the week between Christmas and New Year.
