There are many established Carer support groups across the UK, with several located in Hertfordshire. Some are very active while others are finding it difficult to attract and maintain their membership. Different Carer support groups have different aims for their group ie they might focus on those caring for loved ones with dementia or learning difficulties or simply include any Carer. However, all put mutual support to their member Carers needs and well-being at the centre of what they do.
Our Dacorum-based Carers group is for Carers of loved ones with mental health issues. Our meetings are both informative and, if only for an evening, are a source of respite from your caring role. We provide members with a friendly atmosphere and, as we all are in the same situation, a stigma-free and supportive safe space.
