Carer support groups

head-05aThere’s nothing like talking to someone who has been in a similar situation to you and understands what it’s like to be a carer.

Carer support groups are an opportunity to meet other carers, to share experiences and support each other in a safe and confidential environment. Carers often tell us that support groups help them to feel less isolated and that they really value the chance to share their feelings and discuss carer issues with others.
