If you are caring for someone, it is a good idea to join the carers information service of the local authority of the person you care for.
This is a great way to find out what support is out there local to you, it’s free to join and many carers find having a contact for support is very valuable.
If the cared for person lives in Dorset Council area, please contact Carer Support Dorset.
Phone: 0800 368 8349
If the cared for person lives in Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole Council area, please contact CRISP (Carers Resource Information Support Programme).
Phone: 01202 458204
Both council areas in Dorset offer carers discount cards and other support services. For information on these and what discounts are available please contact the above organisations or look at the carers card discount list.
