Anyone can become a carer. You don’t choose to become a carer: it just happens and you have to get on with it.
A carer is someone who provides support to family or friends who could not manage without this help. This could be caring for a relative, partner or friend who is ill, frail, disabled or has mental health or substance misuse problems. All the care they give is unpaid.
The Carers’ Support Centre provides support, information and advice to carers of any age living in the Bristol and South Gloucestershire areas. To find out about our services choose from the drop down menu in the ‘Our services’ section of this website.

The Carers’ Support Centre is a network partner of Carers Trust, the national charity which was formed by the merger of the The Princess Royal Trust for Carers and Crossroads Care.
If you do not live in Bristol or South Gloucestershire you can find your nearest carers centre by searching on the Carers Trust website.
