There are many organisations that can offer support, information and advice

A carer is anyone who provides a great deal of care on a regular basis for a member of their family or a friend - but is not employed to do so. As a carer you may be able to get extra help both for yourself and the person you care for. There are many organisations that can offer support, information and advice. These are linked to below.

Hampshire Family Information Directory (Hampshire FID).  The directory provides a comprehensive range of service information for families, young people and practitioners across the county. It is a part of the national Family Information Direct programme - a suite of free services designed to serve families, or those working to support families.

The Care choice website has been developed by Hampshire County Council's Adult Services department as part of their aim to personalise services. Care choice includes two search facilities, one to find information about care homes in Hampshire and one to find information about organising care at home for Hampshire residents.

The site allows people to carry out a self-assessment to help them determine what care and support they may require and what is available to them.

It contains a wealth of information for carers and those who support friends or relatives in a more informal way.
