Caring can be very isolating and our carers drop-in/ support groups are intended to be a venue in which carers can meet with other carers, gain support, gather information and seek advice as well as having time away from their caring role(s).
There is a Carers Support Coordinator present at every meeting as there may be times when you want to talk to someone who understands the pressures of being a carer or you may want practical advice or support to help you cope.
Tea, coffee, biscuits and a friendly face will always be available for anyone who needs information, emotional or practical support, or simply feels the need to have a chat.
We have drop-in/support groups in the following areas of Plymouth;
Colebrook’s Opportunity Knocks Project offers a Mental Health Carers Support Group and an Ex-carers Support group. Details of this can be found here
