1.5 A support group for carers
We encourage carers to come together to support each other. A carer support group provides the opportunity to socialise with other carers who have similar experiences.
You can talk about your caring situation, share your stories and exchange advice and information.
Groups can be a safe place to talk about your feelings and your worries and to hear how other carers have coped with difficult situations.
PCSE hosts a Carer Support Group, a Carer Education program and a Walking Group.
Contact our Carer Educator for further details.
Talk to our Social Workers or Counsellors for more information on support groups, including groups held in languages other than English.
See the Resources section here for more information on support groups.
It is a happy group and safe place to share.
We all seem to be able to laugh and smile again.
