Adult Carers Support Service

We support unpaid carers aged 19+.   You are a carer if you:

  • Look after someone with a long term health condition, illness, disability or mental health condition
  • You're supporting them to do everyday tasks e.g. washing / dressing / feeding
  • You do this unpaid.

 

Why register as a carer? 

You don’t have to tell anyone that you’re a carer, but it can be useful to register as a carer if you are trying to access certain grants or services.  You can register with the Bromley Well Carers Support Service by calling Bromley Well freephone 0808 278 7898 or email spa@bromleywell.org.uk. Don’t forget to ask your GP to register you as a carer too.
