Our group offers peer support both in the group and at meetings that carers may attend such as needs assessment or clinical interventions. This gives carers the confidence and support they need. Carers can access the group via email or telephone or attend meetings in central Lancashire These give people plenty of opportunity to share experiences with each other and also tend to be mini conferences featuring key speakers.
