Having a space to share your experience as an LGBT+ Carer and help co-design the services you would like us to provide

It is estimated that 1 in 10 people from the LGBT+ community are also a Carer. 

Holding onto your own identity when caring for someone can be really difficult, Carers can become distant from their friends and social lives and feel disconnected from their own communities. For LGBT+ Carers this can be even more challenging, and loss of identity can feel to many that they are having to hide their true selves.

We offer one to one support to LGBT+ Carers around accessing support for themselves or the person they are caring for. We can advocate on behalf of Carer to ensure that services are being supportive and inclusive.

We will be running information sessions for LGBT+ Carers who will be able to access these sessions from wherever they are in London.

We are working hard to raise awareness of LGBT+ Carers and are providing LGBT+ Carer awareness sessions to both Carers and professionals. We will also be giving Carers the opportunity to get involved with delivering these sessions themselves.

Some our wonderful Carers Morgan, Michael and Amit have written blog posts about their journeys as LGBT+ Carers. To read their stories click the buttons below.

Peer Support Group

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.

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.
