The Carers Support Group

The carers support group

During the coronavirus pandemic, we are still caring but we have had to put face-to-face sessions on hold for your own wellbeing. You are able to access a range of emotional support with the counselling team via telephone or Zoom calls. We have been running Carers Group, Creative Workshops and Mindfulness sessions very successfully in this way.

During the year we run a series of Carers 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.  If you are already accessing support from us and are interested in attending the next Carers Group, or would like to know about other group activities, please call the Supportive Care team on 01271 347225 or speak to any team member who is involved in your care.

Service location
The Carers 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.
