Help and support for carers...

We offer Surrey's carers all sorts of free support. Our expert teams have info on benefits and entitlements, we also run dedicated support groups and events. If you're having a tough time we have one to one support and can be on hand with advice.

Support groups

Support groups offer you the chance to chat with our staff, catch up with other carers

Money advice

Caring will often have a financial impact but there are benefits and entitlements in place to support you in your caring role.

One to one support

We can help you get to grips with your rights as a carer and help you plan so you can carry on with life outside of caring.

Every carer has a story...

There are more than 115,000 carers living in Surrey. They come from all walks of life and range in age from 5 to 95.
