The range of services and support available for Dorset carers including how to join the carers information service.

Join the Carers Information Service to keep up to date with all the local events, training courses and more. It's quick, easy and free to join.

When you join you will receive a welcome pack that includes:

  • information and advice about carers services including local support groups
  • the latest copy of Caring Matters, a Dorset-wide magazine for carers
  • a carers discount card

You should join with the council responsible for the person you are caring for (even if this is not your local council). The person you are caring for should be aged 18 or over. You can get help as a carer regardless of whether the person you care for gets support from the council or pays for their own care.
