Connect with carers from across the UK to discuss a range of practical and social topics.
"I'd like to know about the support I can get while I am caring for someone."
Caring for someone with care and support needs is a very important role. It is essential that you get help and support along the way to make sure you do not feel cut off from others and that you look after your own needs.
Take a look at some of the resources available to you.
Shared lives care is delivered locally through registered shared lives carers. It is based on shared interests, lifestyles and a sense of humour. It feels like an ordinary life for someone who needs support - and doesn’t feel like a ‘job’ for you. Find out more about how to become a shared lives carer and the support you’ll receive if you are registered with us.
