A lot of the feedback we receive is about the positive effect of spending time with other carers.

To help you do this we are introducing our new Caring ‘n’ Sharing Cuppa sessions. These will be held monthly at a variety of venues across Allerdale and Copeland.

As well as meeting other carers it will be a great opportunity to take a break from your caring role, have a chat with one of our Adult Carer Support Workers and listen to a variety of guest speakers.

There are many reasons why taking some time to meet other carers is beneficial.

Caring for someone can feel isolating. You may struggle opening up to friends and colleagues thinking they are unable to understand your situation fully.  Meeting other carers can help reduce that isolation; they understand how you feel, the emotions and pressures that caring can bring.

Sharing knowledge, tips and tricks can be very positive and empowering. Being able to pass on what you have learned or experienced can also make someone else’s caring experience a little easier.

Taking some time to step away from caring and focus on your own wellbeing is invaluable.
