We work with professionals and a wide range of organisations in order to deliver the best possible service to unpaid carers in Dorset.

If you identify a carer through your work, a referral to Carer Support Dorset will help them to access support locally.

We can offer:

  • Regular news updates
  • Freephone line for information, advice and guidance
  • Workshops and training
  • Here to talk befriending service
  • Access to Forward Carers Carer Friendly ID Card
  • Young Adult Carer 1-2-1 support and online community
  • Activities and events
  • Referral and signposting to other services
  • Referral for a Care Act Carers Assessment with Dorset Council
