About

Honiton Carers Support Group is a warm and welcoming Carers Group which supports unpaid carers throughout their caring role and beyond.

We welcome all carers including those looking after someone with Dementia.

We meet indoors in a safe environment twice a month on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday and socially on 1st, 3rd and 5th Wednesday of the month for a cuppa & a chat.

We offer various activities at our indoor meetings such as Art & Craft workshops and have speakers and trainers giving talks on both caring and none caring related subjects.

Free transport can be provided to these meetings if required.

We endeavour to have the latest caring related information available to carers and have 4 trained Devon Carers Ambassador attending most meetings. 

We offer telephone support for Carers who cannot attend the Carers Group and regular weekly emails with the latest information.

Honiton Carers is a totally self-funding unincorporated charity group with a constitution and a committee made up of 6 Volunteers.
