Caring with Confidence

Good News!
Thank you to Lloyds TSB Foundation for England and Wales.  They have awarded The Carers Centre funding to run Caring with Confidence in Oadby & Wigston and North West Leicestershire! Since Caring with Confidence was a National Programme, we have received many requests for Caring with Confidence to be delivered in the county.  We are delighted that we can now offer this popular family support service in these areas.  If you would like to find out more information or know of someone who would benefit from this highly valued programme

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.ach run for three hours a week in the City Centre.
