New to caring? Basic support

Torbay Carers Service develops, co-ordinates and organises the services for unpaid carers who care for someone living in Torbay. It doesn’t matter what relation you are to the person you care for or whether you live in the same house, there is a wide range of services for carers.

Details can be found in our Carers Services Summary. You can also find which Carer Support Worker works at your GP Practice.

The first step is to join Torbay Carers Register to access basic advice information and support. Contact Signposts for Carers for a register pack.

The Register can also provide an emergency card with back-up plan for the person you care for which doubles as a discount card, a Message in a bottle pot or Safely Home bracelet.

The next step is to talk to someone.
