A new provider has been found for a number of vital care services in North Somerset, after one of the district’s largest care charities announced it would soon be closing down.
The Alliance Homes Group will soon provide information, advice, support and counselling services for unpaid young and adult carers in North Somerset.
It has taken over the services from Carers Trust Phoenix, which announced last month it was closing after 25 years as keeping the charity afloat would no longer be financially viable.
Alliance also began employing 50 former Carers Trust Phoenix staff on Saturday, and the organisation will also provide home care services for adults in North Somerset and Bristol.
Steve Chinn is the managing director of the Alliance Homes Group. He told the Mercury: “Carers Trust Phoenix has done a fantastic job providing support and care to thousands of people during the past 25 years, and it is very sad they will not be continuing.
“We are delighted, however, to be able to continue their excellent work.”
