Carers Services

Access Dorset provides some services to Carers, in partnership with Dorset County Council and Dorset CCG.

Dorset Carers Activity Service

Dorset Carers Activity Service provides free activities to Carers in Dorset. The aim is to provide Carers with a short break from their caring role and give them something back for all the hard work they do.

The service offers; a ‘Your choice’ activity grant which allows you up to £30.00 to spend on an activity for yourself.

We also provide information on local Carers support groups and any events that maybe going on in your area.

If you would like to find out more about the service then contact the Service Coordinator on:

Telephone: 01202 771336

    We have a small group of carers and the people they care for here in Verwood. We would like to go for lunch or afternoon tea as a social group and seek funding help to make this happen. I have been asked by our tracker nurse to make enquiries on her behalf and I look forward to hearing from you.

    Please could you tell me what the criteria is to apply for funding and what sort of thing it could be used for, I look after 2 disabled people in my household and didn’t realise that there was funding available.
