How we can support you as a carer
Carers Wellbeing sessions
As a service we deliver and support carers through our group sessions, exploring some of the challenges and difficult emotions carers may experience.
Carers and the session facilitators discuss and share different ways to manage challenges, stress levels and ideas and techniques carers can use to improve and support their own physical and emotional wellbeing whilst caring for someone.
Individual support that carers may need can also be provided through the Wellness Service, Carers Trust and our partners Carers Count.
What sessions are available?
A reflective and motivational session exploring a number of topics to help carers build on their existing strengths and knowledge to be able to look after their own emotional and physical wellbeing and better manage their caring role.

Carers who have attended the sessions have said:
“Very informative, delivered in a friendly way which meant it was easy to have discussions.”
“Left with the knowledge that there are services out there which will support. Thank you”
“I was a bit apprehensive about attending this course, but I found it very relevant and I fell I’ve learned some positive strategies. I was worried the course would make me feel more down about being a carer, but on the contrary, I feel you’ve given me a lot of food for thought and I’m feeling better about things in just a couple of hours. Thank you.”
