Carer Information and Support Groups

Carers Bucks runs many carers groups across Buckinghamshire for carers aged 18+.

These groups are a great opportunity to meet other carers, share information and talk to our experienced support team. Throughout the year, we will also be running information sessions on carer’s assessments, lasting power of attorney, supportive technology and Wycombe Talking Newspaper.

If so, you are a carer and Carers Bucks can help you.
