We exist to help each other and provide a necessary break from our caring duties. The group is well established having been carers for a long time. The members mainly look after someone with serious mental health issues. As a group of family carers we feel it is important to be able to share experiences good or bad.
The Group provides support and a well earned break which includes some fun; this can only be achieved in association with organisations such as CRCC. This association is greatly appreciated as they have helped with funding, providing advice and information and guest speakers, such as the recently the fuel saving talk. With out this organisation’s assistance it would be very hard for us to exist and provide the facilities we do. As usual caring for family members in any capacity is a largely unpaid and unrecognised function!
