Advice and Support for Unpaid Carers

Published: 06 May 2020

Across Buckinghamshire there are nearly 50,000 adult carers, as well as hundreds of young carers, all looking after someone close to them. Life can be particularly hard right now with access to day-centres and regular activities curtailed because of the social distancing measures.

If you are a carer who is struggling to cope, please don’t suffer in silence. There is a lot of help out there. Local charity Carers Bucks has a website dedicated to supporting carers of all ages with lots of information and advice around coronavirus. They also provide advice and guidance services via a phone line: 0300 777 2722, open Monday to Thursday 9am – 5pm, and Friday 9am – 4.30pm. Please do not hesitate to get in touch.
