Listening ear - Staff/volunteers are available if you need someone to talk to who understands and will listen.

One to one support - We have dedicated workers who offer one to one
support to:

• Parent Carers - Parents of children with any disability, young
person or dependant adult.

• Kinship Carers - family members who have been left with the care
of children whose parents are ill, disabled or have addiction problems and can no longer look after them.

• Carers looking after someone with a mental health issue.

The workers will provide practical information on Carers rights, services
available, information on the illness or disability and provide a listening ear to let you talk through issues and problems you may be facing.
