Caring for a loved one who is unwell can be extremely rewarding, but it can also be very demanding and can take a significant impact on your life. As part of the Southend Carers' Hub, we offer counselling and listening support to carers. We also run a range of peer support activities for unpaid carers across Southend Borough.
Our Peer Support Groups provide a range of opportunities for carers to come together for some well-needed respite, support, and friendship. Attending a group can help reduce stress, and gives carers access to an important social network where you can speak with others in similar caring positions. We can also provide support in accessing other agencies and services.
The groups cover a wide range of activities to ensure we have something for everyone. Our groups include IT, walking, yoga, a book group, digital arts, fitness, OCD and Anxiety Management and a monthly carers group. See below for a full list of our sessions.
