Together, we can help each other

Although everyone’s caring situation is unique and can come with specific challenges, there are often shared emotions and feelings within our caring community.

We regularly hear people expressing feelings of love and joy, but we understand that feelings of anger and guilt can also be common. Some feel angry about their situation or guilty about putting their needs first and wanting to take time out – it’s a lot to manage and the emotional cycle can feel endless.

Your peers are here for you

If you’ve ever felt this way about your caring role, we want you to know that you are not alone.

You have a tribe of people at The Carers’ Centre that understand.

Free 6-week course

To access vital information and connect you to others in a similar situation, we offer an informative 6-week course both online and in person, led by Wellbeing Coach Sue Judge.

The Coping with Caring course helps you identify and explore the mix of feelings that come with looking after someone. Together we help to switch thoughts of self-blame to compassion and kindness. 

The next course will be happening in September, to register your interest contact us.
