Carers’ Voice Somerset is an influencing body concerned with improving the lives of carers in Somerset. It is made up of representatives of organisations and agencies which have a stake in supporting carers in the county. Carers’ Voice Somerset brings together carers, former carers, local providers, Somerset Clinical Commissioning Group and Somerset County Council commissioners to advise and make recommendations on the joint development of health, social care and related services.
Carers’ Voice Somerset was set up in response to National Strategies to ensure that carers are able to access the appropriate support and services they need that will enable them to:

Please note: Carers’ Voice Somerset is not a ‘lobbying group’ and as such does not have the jurisdiction to publically campaign on issues solely relating to individual carers.
Carers’ Voice Somerset is an open, public meeting and as such issues affecting only one individual carer cannot be raised at the meeting.
*Somerset’s Commitment to Carers was produced by Carers’ Voice Somerset. The Commitment focuses on a number of key themes and priority outcomes based on what carers have told us they need.
Carers' Voice Somerset will be hosting a series of events for carers across the county.
These events will provide an opportunity for you to:
Find out about new and improved services in Somerset
