Circles of Support was aimed at carers over the age of 50. The scheme from Carers Aid Torbay helped develop a person-centric support network, so people could achieve goals and aspirations that they wouldn’t otherwise have been able to do due to their circumstances.
Carers Aid Torbay work to improve support, services and recognition for anyone living with the challenges of caring, unpaid, for a family member or friend who is ill, frail, disabled or has mental health or addiction problems.
A Carer is someone of any age who provides unpaid support to family or friends who could not manage without this help. This could be caring for a relative, partner or friend who is ill, frail, disabled or has mental health or substance misuse problems.
