We are commissioned by Gloucestershire County Council and NHS Gloucestershire Clinical Commissioning Group. We opened our service in April 2019 and have been supporting Carers, ever since.
Gloucestershire Carers Hub is part of the PeoplePlus group’s Independence services, which empowers people with a range of support needs to lead independent lives.
Every day another 6,000 people take on a caring responsibility
that equals over 2 million people each year.
The Carers Hub aims to support Carers across the region to access a one stop shop for advice and support. We endeavour to be the listening ear and the supportive hand for Carers seeking guidance.
Information, Advice & Guidance
