South Lakeland Carers is a partner organisation with the Carers Trust.
The Carers Trust is a national organisation, South Lakeland Carers is just one of 144 Carers’ Centre’s nationwide
The Carers Trust website hosts a variety of different Chat Rooms and Blogs which anyone is welcome to access. The ‘Archived Chats’, ‘Blogs’ and ‘Discussion Board’ can be browsed without the need to register. However, in order to participate in the ‘Live Chat’ facility, you will need to register with the Carers Trust. You are able to choose a level of privacy or visibility that suits you.
The Carers Trust website is also a valuable source of up to date news on issues affecting carers.
The Carers Trust is able to facilitate and support these ‘Carers Chat’ and news facilities because of the number of its members and staff. The size of its membership is of benefit in terms of the likelihood of being able to ‘chat’ online to a fellow carer, whatever the time of day or night. We would encourage you to access these pages if they would be of benefit to you; but would also encourage you to come back to this site for support and information closer to home.
The Carers Trust aims to provide:
- A stronger brand with increased power to lobby and fundraise.
- Better services that are Carer-led.
- Better support to our networks and partners.
