The contract will cover carers of people living in the Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole conurbation.
The aim of the contract is to enable carers to connect with their local community, reduce social isolation, to signpost new carers to information and advice that will be useful to them, to understand some of the challenges they may encounter and how they might manage them.
The contract is for five years with two optional one year extensions.
