Support For Carers

VASL - Support For Carers Project

We run the Support for Carers Leicestershire project to support carers throughout the county, whether you care full-time or for a few hours a week.  You can see what the service offers here http://www.supportforcarers.org/

By August 2017 we had 4200 carers signed up for the service and around 5 new carers join every week.

The project aims to inform and support carers in all communities throughout Leicestershire, to improve carers’ quality of life, promote their health and well-being and to encourage them to make real choices about their lives.

The service includes:

  • a dedicated telephone advice line (calls charged at local rates) so you can talk to experienced professionals in confidence about any aspect of being a carer,
  • carers’ support groups around the county,
  • a telephone befriending service specifically for carers, a website full of news and information, a quarterly newsletter and an online directory of local services for carers.

The project is funded by Leicestershire County Council.
