Support groups and awareness sessions
Peer support groups can be very helpful and a good place to learn from each other.
The support groups run by Carers Trust Heart of England often arrange speakers to talk to groups about a range of issues that might affect them or are of interest to carers.
We also arrange events, forums and meetings that cover topics that are important for carers to know about. For example past events have included sessions on benefits and welfare reforms, prevention of pressure ulcers, understanding local changes in Council and Health services and Telecare and other assistive technology.
