Newsletter and Factsheets

Carers Contact Newsletter

“Keeps me in touch with what’s going on. Enjoy reading it.”
“Has a comforting effect. Love to read other carers’ experiences.”

Our free ‘Carers Contact’ newsletter is sent out in March, June, September and December. The newsletter contains information and articles on:

  • Bolton Carers Support services
  • local services
  • support groups
  • health matters
  • money matters
  • forthcoming short breaks
  • forthcoming carers courses

If you are a carer and would like to join the mailing list, please contact the Carers Helpline 01204 363056 to request a free Carers Information pack which includes a short registration form or request one by email on the homepage. Once this is completed,  the newsletter will then be sent to you automatically by post or electronically.  You can stop it at any time by ringing us or emailing us.

Carers and professionals working with carers who wish to view the newsletter can do so through this website where the current issue and some back copies are stored. Due to limited resources we are unable to mail out hard copies to professionals.
