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
