The Lancashire Carers Service

Carers Link and n-compass work in partnership to deliver The Lancashire Carers Service to provide support across the whole county of Lancashire. For more specific information about the service, including additional support for carers helping someone with mental health needs and young carers, visit their website.
The Lancashire Carers Service works across the county providing information and support to unpaid carers aged 18 and over.

- Carers Help and Talk (CHAT) Line
- Information and signposting to other support services
