  • Carers Emergency Scheme
  • Carers breaks
  • Carers wellbeing payments
  • Hospital liaison
  • Carers’ voice
  • Positive Caring education and training
  • Emotional and wellbeing support

What does this mean for carers?

We have developed Frequently Asked Questions in partnership with PeoplePlus, Gloucestershire County Council and Guideposts which you can read here.

Our former Carers Line number 0300 111 9000 has transferred to the new Gloucestershire Carers Hub or you can email carers@peopleplus.co.uk for support.
