General information

Service offered: Volcare is a unique ‘in the home’ respite care service for fulltime Carers living with the loved-one they are caring for. Full time Volunteers take over the caring role, enabling the Carer to take a break. Respite care is on a built-up, planned and occasional basis, and can be booked for a six hour visit (we do not make shorter visits) and eventually in some circumstances for overnight respites. Funded by Social Services and free at the point of delivery.

Target group: Carers.

Area served: Canterbury, Thanet and Dover & Deal Districts, and Faversham.
