Male Carers

Male Carers are more commonly hidden Carers, it’s ok to ask for support

1 in 4 Carers in the UK are a Male Carer. Historically male Carers have been hidden in their caring role.

With the number of male Carers across the UK rising as more men feel able to ask for support, we have put together a male Carers peer support group developed by our male Carers focus group. The group meets on the second Monday of every month from 11am-1pm.

For any support in your caring role or to join our male Carers group please email Quyen:

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.
