FAQs on Groups & Forums
Can I attend more than one Carers’ Support Group?
You can attend as many groups as you like. Groups have been organised in different locations around the County. Each group is different as some like the group to be informative with speakers and others just want to meet for a chat with like minded people. Many good friendships have been formed through attending carers' groups so do give them a try!
How can I meet other carers?
Check our newsletter or website for details of carers groups in your area. If there is not a group near you and you know a few carers who would like to start a group, contact Support for Carers Leicestershire and we will give you all the support and encouragement we can. We can help to find a venue, apply for funding and contact other carers in the area to promote the group.
If you are unable to leave the person you care for you may like to consider having a Telephone Befriender so you have someone to talk to outside of the family.
Where can I find out about Carers’ Groups where I live?
You can find out about local Carers' Groups in Leicestershire in the Meet Other Carers section of the website. There's also a growing list of groups and activities in our online directory. Alternatively, please feel free to call us on 0845 689 9510 or email [email protected]
We're very happy to help set up new carers' groups around Leicestershire.
