Volunteer support for carers


VolunteerNet is a new pilot project for unpaid carers who live with the person they care for. Once a carer has joined, they can log onto the website and find a volunteer. This volunteer can:

  • help you with practical tasks
  • spend time with you and the person you care for
  • spend time with the person you care for, whilst you have some time for yourself.

For more information about VolunteerNet and to join the project please contact Social Care Direct.
