Caring with Confidence is a free programme for anyone caring for a family member or friend who is chronically ill or disabled. This can have a huge impact on your own health and wellbeing, many say they feel isolated, experience feelings of being unable to cope, unsure where to go for advice and support, or feel they are not being heard. Others say they would like the chance to meet others in similar situations.
