We have 3 main services for unpaid Carers: Caring4Me, Money & More, and I CAN.

Caring 4 Me

Our “Caring4Me” service helps provide Carers with opportunities to access free or low-cost peer group activities. These include our short breaks, where we have previously visited Museums, Theatres and Art Galleries, and series of Workshops, which have previously included Music, Ceramics and Photography. These events are a chance for Carers to have some time away from their caring role and to explore a new place or hobby!

We also offer 1-1 appointments to listen to Carers who have worries relating to their caring role. During the 1-1 we can discuss your concerns and agree on practical solutions to improve your health and wellbeing.

Money and More

Our “Money & More” service provides Carers with practical financial support through regular 1-1 appointments. We can help to connect Carers with practical services such as benefits advice and information, resources and grant opportunities for a variety of items such as household goods, technology, breaks, and more. This service aims to help Carers feel less stressed and worried about their current financial situation.

I CAN

For Carers aged 16-25, we have a dedicated Young Adult Carers Service: I CAN. The support provided includes 1-1 appointments to discuss any concerns or worries that are affecting them or their caring role, monthly peer group activity sessions, access to learning and development opportunities, quarterly E-bulletins, access to financial support via grants, information and advice on relevant Carer issues and referrals and signposting to relevant support services.
