Cornwall Carers Service
Cornwall Council launched an all age Carers service in Cornwall from 1 July 2016.
The new service, Kernow Carers Service provides support for all unpaid Carers of all ages, is being delivered jointly by Action for Children, working with Cornwall Rural Community Charity and Cornwall’s Family Information Service.
The Council anticipate that at least 8,000 Carers a year will receive one-to-one support from Carer Support Workers, with around 2,000 new Carers a year identified by the service.
The new service began on 1 July 2016 with a new free phone telephone number for the Carers Helpline. This is 0800 587 8191
The new Carers Website sits on the Support in Cornwall web-site.
