Support by other carers groups

Support from other Carers Groups

Carers in Sheffield runs several support groups across the city – see our Carers Groups  page for more details.

There are many more carers groups held across the city, with some being held at the Carers Centre, for example a group for carers of someone who has had a stroke. For more details on any of these, please visit www.sheffieldhelpyourself.org.uk, and use the keyword search for two keywords: ‘carers’ and the condition, eg, ‘dementia’.

Carers Centre is Lord Mayor’s Charity

We are very pleased that the new Lord Mayor of Sheffield, Cllr Peter Rippon, has chosen Sheffield Carers Centre to be one of the beneficiaries of the Lord Mayor’s Charity Fund during his year in office.

We hope the Lord Mayor will be able to join us at events during the year and are delighted that this will help us raise awareness of carers, as well as valuable funds for the Carers Centre.

Carers Together – Online Mentoring Service

Carers in Sheffield has recently become aware of a scheme which enables carers to be put in contact with volunteers, for regular support.  This is a project run through Carers Together – a national organisation based in Birmingham.

Carers Together offers two different kinds of support:

  • An online mentoring service, available to anyone in England with access to the internet
  • A face-to-face mentoring service for carers in the Birmingham area
