Useful links

Below are some quick links to organisations but if you would like to search in more detail for a service which meets either your health needs or that of the person you care for, the type of support you’re looking for or what’s available in your local area, please check our disability and carers service directory.

Disability and carers service directory

We have developed a one-stop shop for all your information and advice needs in the form of a service directory.  It will help you to navigate the health, social and voluntary sectors, giving you the contact details of organisations or services.

We strongly advise you contact a number of services which could meet your needs. This will give you a broader understanding of what is available, enabling you to make an informed decision. However, if you’re still not sure about what service could meet your needs, please don’t hesitate in contacting us.

If you notice any mistakes with the information in the directory, please let us know so that we can make the necessary changes.
