At our support groups, you’ll be among other people who can do far more than just sympathise because we all share similar experiences and can understand, quite genuinely, what you may be going through. This may help you to feel less isolated and you may want to share your feelings with the group, especially if you have been feeling very unhappy, or if you have good news to share with others, but this is entirely up to you. We make sure that we maintain confidentiality. Whatever is discussed in the room stays in the room!
We provide a variety of specialist support groups such as:
- Autism/Learning Disability Carers
- Mental Health Carers
- Dementia Carers
- Carers Care Home Network
- Bereaved/Former Carers
We also provide general support/friendship groups which are open to any carer, regardless of the illness or disability your loved one may have. These groups are available in the daytime and also quarterly during the evening if you’re working or find it difficult to attend during the day.
Our meetings are held on a regular basis and this enables us to build relationships within the group. You may find that you make new friends and that your social life improves as a result.
