Together We Care Groups

By coming to a Together We Care group, you will be able to get together with other carers, find out a wide range of information about caring, gain the knowledge, skills and confidence to get the services you need, learn new tips to look after your own well-being.

Groups are held in a number of different places across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland. Some groups are online via Zoom, some face to face and some a mixture of both.

Benefits of coming to a Group

  • Meet other carers to share experiences and ideas
  • Find out about your rights and entitlements as an unpaid carer
  • Gain the skills to help you access the services you need
  • Understand how to manage stress and cope with difficult situations
  • Learn skills to help you manage and improve your well-being
  • Help to make decisions about services for carers and those you care for
Groups are relaxed, friendly and welcoming and are led by experienced Carers Centre staff with regular support and presentations from professionals in other local organisations

Carers' Comments 

“I love popping to the Together We Care group. It’s really friendly. It’s a great source of information and support”

“Coming to the group helps build confidence. I feel less isolated each week”

“I used your information about accessing social care when I made a complaint. Because of your help, I knew what I was entitled to and how to get my views heard” 

"I was anxious on my way to the group but as soon as I walked through the door that feeling, poof, was gone"

“In groups like this, people are very supportive of each other, there are things you can say that you can’t even say to your family”

Some of the issues the group have talked about include:

  • How to look after your health and wellbeing when caring
  • How to be assertive and have your voice heard
  • How to access services in health, social care and education
  • How to get a carer’s assessment/ carers passport
  • How to deal with difficult behaviours
  • Before you join a group there will always be an opportunity to speak to one of the team to talk through your caring role and get advice
