We support unpaid carers aged 55+ who might have a disabled, adult son / daughter / sibling or other relative living at home, who in return, is caring for the older person. We call this mutual caring. This support helps you to remain living in your own home in the community. 

Support includes:

  • Going with you to medical and professional appointments
  • Help writing letters and sorting out bills
  • One to one emotional support. We can do this by phone and also in person at your home
  • Help to think about and plan for the future
  • Help with technology such as CareLink, a personal alarm system which helps you remain safely in your own home
  • Help with internet shopping
  • A chance to meet others in similar situations, have fun and share your experiences. There is a group for older people and another for the disabled carers
  • Information workshops on topics like mental wellbeing, keeping healthy in winter, welfare benefits, scams
  • Healthy eating cookery sessions
  • Sessions on skills like budgeting, travelling safely and first aid
  • Free Carers Newsletter 4 times a year. You can sign up to receive your copy by email. Please read our privacy policy before signing up here.
