Former Carers

A space for former Carers to navigate through what comes next

If your caring role has come to an end and the question of what to do now, and how to start taking the time to focus on yourself is difficult, we can help.

Our former Carers peer support group is held on the last Wednesday of every month from 2pm-4pm. We have further information on changing roles and finding your identity outside of being a Carer on our Transitions page here.

If you have questions around further support of if you would like to join our former Carers group please email:

Our peer support groups give Carers an opportunity to share lived experiences with other Carers who may be in similar situations to themselves. They allow Carers to co-produce the groups and the topics covered each month as well as many of our groups being co-facilitated with Carers.It also allows for Carers to feedback to the Centre, experiences they have had with services within the borough and help us develop methods of improving the services provided for Carers. If you would like to co-facilitate one of our peer support groups please click the link below, we would like to hear from you. Please email:

Our aim is always to support Carers’ to care for themselves, so they are able to continue caring for someone else.

We will always work hard to raise Carer Awareness, to celebrate Carers and be the support and advice service you can always rely on.
