VolunteerNet (support for carers)

This link will take you to the VolunteerNet website. It's a free, easy and safe way for carers to access support from fully checked, trained and supervised volunteers. You will have to apply to join the service, so that they can help you, but it's a very simple process.

What type of support can you ask for?

Different types of support include:

  • Practical support such as collecting prescriptions, giving you a lift to the shops or carer support group
  • Spending time with you and the person you care for; perhaps going for a walk together or on a trip to the cinema or perhaps just enjoying a chat together.
  • Allowing you to have time for yourself while the volunteer and the person you care for enjoy an activity together.
