Carer Support Wiltshire is a registered charity that supports all carers in Wiltshire. Our aim is to create carer friendly communities where carers are recognised, valued and supported.
A carer is anybody who provides support to a family member, friend or neighbour who could not always manage without that support
Our Courage to Care Service is funded by the Armed Forces Covenant to provide services to serving military families who are caring for somebody and may experience additional pressures due to the nature of serving family life
Courage to Care focuses on developing peer support networks, and offering additional skills that will enable carers to access work and accredited courses that will enable families to sustain themselves

CESSAC has been operating amenity centres for serving members of the Armed Forces and their families in establishments at home and abroad for over 125 years. It branched out into managing sheltered housing for retired ex-HM forces people and their family members in southern England over 40 years ago through its sister organisation CESSA HA. Both organisations are managed from the Head Office in Portsmouth and share the website. The CofE in each title simply reflects the ethos of the founders and Directors – delivery has always been to those of all religions and none.

The Defence Medical Rehabilitation Centre (DMRC) Benevolent Fund purchases specialist goods and services for patients whilst they undertake their rehabilitation programme. In addition to these purchases the money raised provides patients with the opportunity to engage in social activities over the course of their stay at DMRC Stanford Hall. Socialising outside of Stanford Hall allows them to interact normally in public and forget about their injuries and rehabilitation for a few hours. The rehabilitation benefits are enormous, providing a much-needed boost of motivation during the difficult and lengthy period of their mental and physical rehabilitation.

The DMRC Benevolent Fund provides environmental and social integration opportunities to increase patient’s exposure to activities of normal life that many of us take for granted. This may be in the form of trauma patients attending sporting events with large crowds, or a patient with chronic pain and fear of outside spaces travelling on public transport and attending a café, developing independence. The charity also provides a wide range of specialist equipment.

Public generosity and fundraising allows the charity to provide the extra elements of rehabilitation that the public purse does not have the ability to provide. Your valued contribution makes the often difficult and traumatic road to rehabilitation a little easier for all patients. Knowing that they remain in the thoughts of the Great British public is a hugely positive reminder that their selfless commitment to the Armed Forces is repaid when they are injured.
