Our 'Keeping Carers in Mind' service offers advice, help, support and training to carers who are in employment or seeking to get back into employment, enabling carers to achieve and maintain their desired level of independence.
We also work with carers and employers to look at how employers can support a member of staff who also has a caring role. This could be by acting as a mediator, supporting carers to talk to employers about their role as a carer and how this may impact on their paid employment.
If you are looking for help or advice or would like to find out more about this service, please contact us

If you are a carer and feel like you might benefit from a little time to focus on your own needs or perhaps to exchange support with people who are in the same or similar positions, you might be interested in our Carers Toolbox.
This is a free, five week programme for anyone with caring responsibilities and has been designed to help individuals improve their wellbeing and achieve greater balance in their lives. In addition to emotional wellbeing the course will look at budgeting and practical issues as well as stress management and increasing self esteem.
If you are interested in taking part or would like further information, please contact us for the next dates.
