Information for families in Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole

The Leonardo Trust

The Leonardo Trust is an independent charity set up to help people in Dorset who are voluntary carers for sick or disabled relatives or friends.

We appreciate that being a full-time carer is hard work and that getting time off can be difficult and everyone needs some time to themselves for short periods of rest and relaxation. If finding the money for a few hours extra respite care or to pay for whatever you would like to do to relax is difficult, we may be able to help you.
