Support for carers

Alliance Homes Group

The Alliance Homes Group provide a single point of contact for carers of any age to access the help and practical support that you need.

Their support workers work with you to identify problems related to your caring responsibilities and to find potential solutions to them. They can support you to have some time of your own, separate from your caring responsibilities, if this is what you want to do.

They deliver their carers support services in North Somerset in partnership with

Age UK Somerset

North Somerset Community Partnership

Their partnership is called ‘The Carers Support Alliance’

Are you a carer? If so, PositiveStep want to make sure that they are caring for carers, to do this they have created a series of workshops especially for you.

The workshops cover a variety of topics such as:   “Keeping your Spirits up”, “Improving how you feel about yourself” and “Coping with Change”. The workshop’s format is partly psycho- educational and partly therapeutic. The therapeutic part will give you the opportunity to share some of your concerns and experiences with other carers who are attending the workshop with you.
