We all need time to ourselves. Maybe listening to music, getting out of the home to clear our head or just space to ask someone a question.

If you register with Devon Carers, it only takes about 30 seconds, then you can find out what help and support is available to you or someone in your family.

Register as a carer

“Over the years there have been a number of services that have helped me as I’ve transitioned from being a full-time carer to a working carer. I received Carers Allowance from the Department of Work and Pensions, and whilst this was not a significant amount it did help me to manage financially during a difficult period.”
