Funded by the National Lottery, this is a 4 year project to support Carers across Essex, including Southend and Thurrock.

We asked Carers and Professionals what would most help Carers, the answers:

  • Get the message across that Carers are as important as the loved one they care for, that they need to take breaks and keep their own interests and identity.
  • Look at straightforward ways to manage day-to-day stress
  • Provide events outdoors
  • Provide relaxing complementary therapies, eg massage and reflexology
  • Provide activites that are free and local
