Caring for carers
Working From Home
As we enter another lockdown, we will be closing our centre to all non-staff members. We hope everyone stays safe during this time and takes all necessary precautions.
The centre is now only open to visitors by prior appointment. If you need to use the centre in anyway please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for booking details.
Vaccination for Unpaid Carers
We got good news! It has officially been announced that carers who receive Carer’s Allowance or are the main carer of an elderly or disabled person whose welfare may be at risk if the carer contracted COVID should be included in Priority 6 alongside people with underlying conditions.
This is fantastic news for carers especially after a challenging year!
New Support Groups Now Live
We have added some excellent new support groups right before the year ends. Support groups are now available for parent carers, cancer carer, dementia carers and those caring for a partner. Lets finish the year supporting each other!

We not only help you get back into work, but also care for your well-being and mental health.
Our experienced advisors in the Working for Carers Programme are dedicated to helping you become more confident and find a job that fits your caring schedule. Our training includes CV writing skills, interview techniques, as well as creating a positive approach to employment. We have several success stories of carers who have secured a job they love.
Help with your health and well-being
We take a holistic approach to support.
We run workshops, clubs, counselling sessions, advisory services and other activities. We aim to make you feel better. We help you with stress management, mindfulness and well-being to boost your confidence and positivity.
Why not support us?
Every donation helps; whether it’s a one-off contribution like a legacy donation or a monthly direct debit.
Your donations can help us create new services and provide better support to our carers. From complementary therapies to counselling and training for carers, your help can go a long way.
Caring for someone is mentally and physically demanding.
You may need additional help or some downtime from your caring duties. Our fully trained Care Support Workers can step in to support you as much or as little as you want, whether it’s occasional help or something more regular.
New Wellbeing Package
Carers have full access to our services including the welfare benefits support, mental health workshops, social and educational events and training activities.
We help members take back control of their lives and improve their living standards by doing something for themselves. We have various payment schemes to fit your financial situation.
