The Carers support group is led by Irene Moss and Jessica Iliffe
The aim of this group is to support both present and former carers; a place where the carers can support, share and learn from each other. This group also supports the overall service by acting as a working group in that it helps to raise the awareness of carers and also supports through discussing particular areas of concern for carers within the group; this can provide valuable information for dealing with the issue and provides guidance in regards to future developments of the service.
The group also plan events and activities for themselves to ensure there is a social aspect.
Regular updates in regards to the carers support group’s progress and outcomes will be available from April 2015
