Introduction

“A carer spends a significant proportion of their life providing unpaid support to family or friends. This could be caring for a relative, partner or friend who is ill, frail, disabled or has mental health or substance misuse problems”

Carers’ Voice Somerset Partnership Board is a strategic group, and an influencing body and voice for unpaid carers in Somerset. We are concerned with improving the lives of unpaid carers in Somerset, and advise and make recommendations on the joint development of health, social care and related services.
