Our support for carers is focussed on improving carer wellbeing and reducing the inequalities carers face. Our activities are primarily delivered through peer support via both in-person and online groups, trips, walks, breaks and telephone support, as well as information and signposting.
As people are often carers for many years, our support is not time limited. We are an ongoing source of support to carers throughout their caring journey. We are here for as long as carers feel they need us, including post-caring. Life after caring is a challenging journey to navigate. For some carers they choose to stop accessing any form of carer support early on, but for many the withdrawal of such support can cut them adrift. Rather than set time-limits for this we instead allow carers to decide for themselves when they no longer need our support. Many carers later become volunteers.
