Support for carers

Alliance Homes Group

The Alliance Homes Group provide a single point of contact for carers of any age to access the help and practical support that you need.

Their support workers work with you to identify problems related to your caring responsibilities and to find potential solutions to them. They can support you to have some time of your own, separate from your caring responsibilities, if this is what you want to do.

They deliver their carers support services in North Somerset in partnership with ‘Age UK Somerset’ and ‘North Somerset Community Partnership’. Their partnership is called ‘The Carers Support Alliance’

Carers UK

As the UK’s only national membership charity for carers, Carers UK is both a supportive community and a movement for change.

For the past 50 years we’ve been driven by carers raising their voices together to call for change and seek recognition and support.

Looking after someone can be a rewarding experience but it can also be lonely and bewildering. At these times, you need people around you who really understand caring.

168 Medical Group Message

Like many practices across the country, the impact of COVID has led to unparalleled levels of demand for 168 Medical Group. We are doing all we can to ensure those with medically urgent conditions are seen on the day. To support us to help those who need it most, if you are in the early stages of an illness or have a short term minor condition, please use the self-help guides on Ask My GP or the NHS website to self-care. When you contact us, we will ask you what you’ve done to self care. With self-care, many minor illnesses can resolve without needing medical treatment from a GP.

If you still need medical help, please note that our telephone team may refer you to our physiotherapist, mental health nurse or pharmacist if your condition is suitable to be treated by one of our extended healthcare team.

Please remember that our team are here to help you. They are doing a difficult job in challenging times. Please treat them with the same level of respect as you’d expect in return.
