Carers in our community do a big and important job that is not always recognised.

Caring for someone nearing end of life is a special and sometimes challenging role. The good news is you don’t have to do it alone. Our volunteers and staff are here to support you, and to understand your needs and concerns.

Becoming a carer

Carers may include family, friends, volunteers and a team of professional support-givers. If you have become a primary carer (the person doing most of the care-giving), you may notice how the role gradually takes up more and more of your time, effort and emotional reserves. We understand this and are here to help.
