Carers’ Services

Caring for someone can be rewarding, especially when you can see the person is well and living safely at home. However, it is often hard work and can leave carers feeling exhausted.

We provide support for carers of all ages, in all caring situations. We aim to promote and protect the health and wellbeing of carers.

We are aware that the Covid-19 pandemic remains a very anxious time for family carers. We cannot currently offer face-to-face assistance through the carer support service but support is still available by contacting us Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm at telephone 028 9504 2126 or email: CarerSuppSvcs@belfasttrust.hscni.net
