Carer development

Carer development

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 opportunities.

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.
