Newbie here

Hi, I’m Stephen. I care for my partner, David, who has mobility problems. We are both in our 70s.
I came here because I have recently joined online Carers’ groups in Sheffield and asked if there was a group for LGBTQ+ carers. There seems to be a lot of material online, much of which appears to have a common source. I’d like to make that material available to our local Carers’ Centre.

Hi Stephen

Welcome to our forum, I’m not sure if you are aware but we are currently running a series of online weekly meet ups for carers to get together and chat informally. People say they’ve found it really helpful and supportive and it’s nice to be able to take a little bit of time for yourself. There’s no pressure to share any more than you’re comfortable with. Join up details are here:

We are also now running a weekly Share and Learn sessions, where we run a series of fun and relaxed online sessions where visiting speakers who share tips and skills on a range of topics - please have a look at the link and see if one grabs your attention.

Do join if you’d like to, we’ve had a lot of new carers join the sessions recently and it’s a great way to meet other carers.
with best wishes
