The Carers Support Group

The carers support group
During the year we run a series of carers' support groups which are led by one of our Supportive Care team.  As a group, these carers will meet once a week over the course of six weeks. During the group sessions there are opportunities to talk about personal experiences and about what is happening around you, as well as listen to others who are experiencing similar situations.

How to be referred
If you would like to access any of North Devon Hospice's care and support, please ask your GP to make a referral to North Devon Hospice.  If you are already accessing support from us and you are interested in attending the next carers' support group, please speak to one of the team who is involved in your care.

Service location
The carers' support groups are run from our main site at Deer Park, which is on the outskirts of Barnstaple, and also from The Long House, our outreach centre in Holsworthy.


For those who would find it difficult to travel to our main site at Deer Park in Barnstaple or The Long House in Holsworthy, our team of volunteer drivers are usually available to provide transport. All our services, including transport, are provided completely free of charge.
