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.

We provide support and information to all Carers, over the age of eighteen, in the City of Leicester either at our Carers Hub, based at Clarence House, 46 Humberstone Gate Leicester or at other locations throughout the City.

Carers Drop In and Outreach Sessions

We 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.

Carer Learning

Carer Learning is 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.
