SMS: 07714 075993

Please contact us for advice, information, advocacy, training and access to other information to support you in your caring role.

The new service will continue to offer a flexible range of support by telephone, face-to-face meetings where needed, local carers meetings, support groups and workshops.  This will be complemented by a range of digitally based resources as well as paper-based information. 

In addition, there will also be carer advisors in the county's five main acute hospitals (East Surrey, Epsom, Royal Surrey County, Frimley Park and St Peters).

The new service will provide consistent local delivery across the county with all referrals coming into a Carers Information Centre to get you the help you need and put you in touch with the right people.

When the service is fully established, recognising that caring is not  Monday to Friday 9-5, we will be piloting  an expansion of the hours and days that the service is available to carers.
