 Carers can self-refer, and professionals or friends and family can also refer to the service with the permission of the carer. Visit the Listening Support Service page here.

We also offer online wellbeing activities and sessions through our programmes ‘Me Time’and ‘Care for a Cuppa’. These sessions are free to carers and offer a chance to meet other carers, attend talks and get advice from professionals and take part in activities for wellbeing, such as mindfulness, yoga, craft, dance and much more.
