Carers support groups

by | Jan 24, 2017 | Carers, News, Support

Carers Groups are facilitated by Carers Bucks across Buckinghamshire. Groups are designed as a local support network for carers and are all facilitated by Support Workers who are available to discuss your caring role, within the groups or on a one to one basis. The groups welcome anyone in a caring role. Support is provided by meeting together and sharing experiences, information and offering peer support to one another (as well as the much needed cup of tea of course). Carers have reported that the group gives them the opportunity for a much needed ‘break’ from their caring role. Groups are carer led and have their own programme of events – many of the groups invite guest speakers with expertise on relevant issues. Some carers share their thoughts on the benefits of attending our support groups: Carers Bucks
