We have recently launched 3 new support services for Carers living in the City of Leicester: 

  • Carers aged 18+ who care for someone who has a mental health need -        Training Sessions For Carers   Events  
  • Carers aged 18+ who care for someone who has a mental health need from Asian Communities
  • Older Asian Carers - Events 

 

If you look after a friend or family member, who relies on your support to manage their daily life, you are a Carer.  We can offer free and confidential support and we are here to help you. 

Carers Drop In & Outreach Sessions

We can offer peer support and one to one support at our regular drop-in and outreach sessions for Carers who live in Leicester City. Call in for an informal chat. No appointment needed. 

Carers Wellbeing Breaks

We offer the opportunity for Carers to take part in relaxing activities, social gatherings and outings.  In addition, we offer well-being services for Carers who live in Leicester and are caring for a family member or friend. 

One to one sessions are available on:

  • Alternative Therapies
  • Mindfulness Training
  • Recreational Activities
  • Relaxation Techniques 

Information Advice & Guidance Service

We can provide information advice and guidance to enable Carers to feel more knowledgeable and confident about their caring role and the person they care for. Support is available to help Carers understand and access their rights and entitlements and ensure that they have the information they need to make choices and decisions about access to additional support if they need it. 

Training

Training sessions are available to help Carers feel more able to undertake their role and feel better equipped to do so. The sessions will improve understanding of the support that is available, help to increase confidence, support Carers’ physical and emotional wellbeing and reduce isolation.
