Carers Directory & Handbook

Carers Directory

Do you look after someone? Directory of support, advice and information for carers in the Vale of Glamorgan & Cardiff

The Cardiff and Vale Carers Directory has been updated and is now available

We know that carers sometimes find it difficult to get the support they need and to know who to contact. This directory is a comprehensive listing of services for carers of all ages and includes information on self-help groups, telephone helplines, advocacy, social support and many other services.

The directory has been produced by GVS in partnership with the Vale of Glamorgan Council, Cardiff Council, Cardiff Third Sector Council (C3SC) and Cardiff & Vale University Health Board.  Click on the links below to the directories.
