Our GP Carers Engagement service offers advice and information to unpaid carers in every GP surgery in Blaenau Gwent. 

Specialist staff work with surgeries to provide free, confidential drop-in sessions for carers. The drop-ins are held at regular time slots and offer a relaxed atmosphere in which to get advice or simply talk to someone.

People can get advice on issues affecting them as carers, including:

  • Carers Assessments
  • Benefits advice
  • Respite care services
  • Social activities and wellbeing advice
  • Education and training opportunities

The aim of the service is to identify carers and work with people who have a care role in the borough, reducing social isolation and improving the quality of people's lives in Blaenau Gwent. 

People can ask their GP reception to book an appointment with our GP Carers Engagement service.
