Resources

Surrey County Council has joined forces with Carers UK to put together a ‘Digital Resource for Carers’ to give carers easy access to a range of information, help and support – available through your computer, tablet or smartphone. 

It includes resilience training for carers; access to the ‘Jointly’ care coordination app; guides for new carers, carers’ rights and nutrition; plus a range of other information and support.

It is free to join – all you have to do is go to www.carersdigital.org click on ‘create new account’ with your email address and a password, and enter the code DGTL3562
