Carers Support Groups
Our monthly Carer Support Groups are open to anyone looking after an adult who is resident in Leicestershire. We run groups all across the county: in Coalville, Whetstone, Melton Mowbray, Hinckley, South Wigston, Loughborough and Market Harborough. Have a look at the "In Your Area" tab to find dates and venues for your nearest group. There is also one in Market Harborough specifically for carers of people with mental health difficulties. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter to be reminded of when the groups are on.
The groups are relaxed and informal, and guest speakers are often arranged.
Can I bring the person I care for?
Our groups are just for carers; that way they are free to open up and be honest about the reality of their caring role.
Can I just drop in and out?
Most of our carers stay for the whole session, especially if there is a guest speaker. We deliberately keep the groups short (90 minutes) because we know carers often can't be out too long.
How can I find out what's planned at any particular group?
Keep an eye on our Twitter or Facebook, where we put it up a few days in advance, or give us a quick call!
