Welcome to the forum!

Hi everyone, and welcome to the forum!
My name is Ella, and I am a volunteer at Carers UK. It’s so lovely to see everyone connecting and sharing their stories. It is also very eye-opening to hear all the daily struggles people face, whether getting (to) appointments, mental health, finding time for yourself, or trying to figure out the benefits system (it can be very confusing!). This is why I have loved volunteering and supporting a cause that affects so many people and that anybody could fall into at any time.
I wanted to put this message here to welcome newcomers and say hi to those here! I imagine you might be here to seek support, advice, tips, or a friendly community to connect with and vent to (we all need that sometimes). So, if you want, feel free to pop in a message to introduce yourself, share your experiences or concerns, and ask any questions. I am sure many here are more than willing to connect and help in any way they can; I know I am!
Thank you all for being a part of this community. I hope you have a wonderful day and get to enjoy the beautiful weather. Your presence here makes a difference, and we’re grateful to have you.
