Local groups around the city are run to support carers. They are not run by the Carers Centre (unless marked with *), but by a range of other organisations, and by carers themselves. We often support these groups and our Community Liaison worker will visit them regularly. Please use the contact details listed by each group if you would like more information about a particular group or to check that it is going ahead. You can download the most recent listing of Carers Support Groups (updated March 2020)
