Let’s keep in touch

We’re delighted to announce the launch of a new guide to help carers and those they care for maintain social connections during a time of physical distancing.

Chief Executive for Sheffield Carers Centre, Pauline Kimantas, commented: “Restrictions on the way people can meet in person has a particular impact on carers, who are often more isolated because of their caring role. As physical distancing has become the norm, it is important we all continue to make as much social connection as possible.  This guide aims to encourage carers to take steps to maintain their existing connections and try new ones.  It provides some ideas, plus useful information and advice on how to take action to maintain social connections.”.

Special edition of our printed newsletter Connect!

We’ve been producing and emailing our monthly newsletter in a digital format during 2020. However, following the award of a grant from Carers Trust for a short-term project to help address the social isolation of carers, we decided to print and post a special edition of Connect! This printed newsletter was sent to 6,000 of our registered carers in Sheffield, but anyone who didn’t receive a copy through their letterbox can now click here to read a PDF copy.
