Covid-19 Statement from Carers Count


Carers Count is still working and accepting referrals during the current situation. You can use our usual phone number, 0300 012 0231, and email address: info@carerscount.org.uk.

We are changing the way that we work at the moment, following government guidance on how to work safely. Most important is the health, wellbeing and safety of people we work with, our staff and volunteers.

We are introducing different ways for the team to work with people during this time, including offering support over the phone and by video call. Please also visit our Library for updated advice and resources for carers.

We have also had to take the difficult decision to stop our groups until further notice; we will stay in touch and look at different ways people can support each other. Please visit our Calendar for updates on events happening online.

Take care of yourselves. #stayhomestaysafe
