Fitzhead Village

Community Council for Somerset (CCS)

Do you look after someone else? Or know of a person that does? In Somerset there are around 66,000 people who are classed as unpaid carers, and it is estimated that 1 in 3 of us will become a carer at some point in our lives.

Would you know where to turn if you suddenly had to care for someone else? Or if looking out for someone evolved into looking after someone?

Who cares for the Carers? The CCS do.

At Somerset Carers, Village Agents are ready to support you at any and every stage of your caring journey. Support isn’t intervention. Support is a listening ear, advice to help you see the wood for the trees, connecting to the right services, respite help, an occasional supply of food to give you a break and more.
Support is making your life easier. Please raise your hand and be seen, raise your hand and be heard. CCS have produced a video about Somerset Carers.

Please call CCS’s Carers Advice Line on 0800 316 8600, email carers@somersetrcc.org.uk or visit the Community Council for Somerset website.
