Being a carer can be very demanding and leave little time for a
break or quality time to yourself. The Carer's Support and
Development department focuses on the needs of the carer by
offering support, advice and information. Just as importantly we
offer carers a chance to unwind, have fun and feel refreshed.
Carers are often unaware of the support services available to
them so we point them in the right direction as well as offering
advice from our experienced team. We also provide access to
training, self-development skills and volunteering
We endeavour to help relieve some of the stress from carers and
do this by facilitating quality time out and social activities that
they may not have had time for. We organise activities, social
events and outings to create not only an enjoyable and sociable
atmosphere but also a potential support network.
