Carers' Support Centre
When you have the well-being and sometimes the life of a loved one in your hands, the responsibility can be too much to cope with alone. Unpaid Carers look after family members and friends who couldn't manage without their support because of illness, frailty, disability or substance misuse problems.
3 in 5 of us can expect to become a Carer at some time in our lives. The Carers' Support Centre has been supporting Carers in Northern Lincolnshire for over 27 years. We are here to support Carers throughout their caring journey and beyond.
At its simplest, the support we provide gives Carers information and knowledge to help them be independent and take control of their lives. The right information at the right time can be life changing.
Stress, depression, loneliness, isolation, are just some experiences Carers go through as a result of being a Carer. Over 80% say they experience poor mental and physical health and well-being.
We try to understand an individual Carers situation so that we can provide specific support to meet their needs. The support we provide is completely free.
“The Carers Centre kept me going through my darkest moments. I used to go into the centre in tears and when I left I felt the sun was shining and I felt more hopeful"
"The Carers' Support Centre really helped me to accept myself and look at things differently. I am coping better now and feel I have been given the tools to cope. I feel stronger in myself. Your support has been a great help"
There are over 7 million Carers in the UK, together saving the UK economy £129 billion every year! Carers selflessly put the needs of other before their own. They are an unsung army of ordinary people who provide more than three quarters of care in the community. We work tirelessly to ensure Carers know that support is available and that they are not alone.
