Support for carers in the community

Information about the various supports which can be found in the community to help you in your caring role.

Adult Carer Support Plans

The Council has a duty to provide you with an opportunity to speak to someone about what help would be useful to your caring role.  A 'Carers Support Plan' will be written outlining the support which may help you to remain in your caring role.

To arrange an appointment, call the Early Intervention and Prevention service on 0345 30 111 20 or email

Emergency Carer's Card

Emergency Planning is important when someone depends on you, so that if anything happens to you they will get the support they need.  

This card could give you the peace of mind and reassurance that the person who depends on you will be safe, if something unexpected happens to you. 

To apply, complete our Emergency Carer's Card application form.

If you need help to apply, contact PKAVS on or phone 01738 567076 or email

Telecare service

Telecare, also known as community alarms, provides peace of mind for individuals and their families through a 24-hour response service. More information is available on our Community alarm and telecare service page.

Following completion of a carers support plan, if you feel complementary therapies may help you to relax and to recharge your batteries please contact PKAVS Carers Hub on 0345 30 111 20 or email
