Carmarthenshire Carers Information Service

Carmarthenshire Carers Information Service

Carers say that access to information, financial support and breaks in caring are vital in helping them manage the impact of caring on their lives.

The Carers Information Service provides free and confidential information, advice and support to Carers. We produce and distribute information for carers and organise regular events in partnership with other organisations.

Our quarterly newsletter, Carmarthenshire Carers News, aims to inform Carers and the people they care for of policy issues, services and organisations which may be of some help to them.

Please click here to see and download a list of useful fact sheets. 

In addition to the information we produce, we facilitate regular events for Carers including coffee mornings, focus groups and annual events to mark national Carers Week in June and Carers Rights Day in November.

The service is joint funded by Carmarthenshire County Council and Hywel Dda University Health Board.

Outreach Service

The outreach service can help carers to optimise their quality of life and well-being to enable them to continue to be effective in their caring role as long as that is right for the individual.

Our team of Carers Outreach Workers are experienced in providing one-to-one support to carers and have up-to-date information about the range of support services for carers and the people they care for.

The service covers the whole of Carmarthenshire and appointments can be made at your home or at an alternative venue.

How can I arrange an appointment with a Carers Outreach Worker?

By calling the Carers Information Service on 0300 0200 002 or by emailing info@carmarthenshirecarers.org.uk You can also request an appointment by registering as a carer with your GP surgery via the Investors in Carers registration form.
