Carers in Sheffield has recently launched a Facebook group, following a lot of feedback indicating that many carers would find it really useful to be able to tap into other carers via support online. It was decided to open a Facebook group rather than an online chat-room as this has the benefit of only being open to people in touch with Carers in Sheffield, and people felt safer in this environment. If you would find it helpful to be able to share thoughts/tap into other carers for support and/or hear arrange time to meet up with other carers via Facebook, it would be lovely to have you in the group. Even just to be in a group can be helpful in recognising that there are people out there who have an understanding.
For more information about the Facebook group and how to join, please visit Support via Facebook Groups.
