What is Caring with Confidence?
Caring with Confidence is a series of free local group sessions for carers aged over 18.
The sessions help carers to make a positive difference to their life and the person they care for.
Themes range from handling emotions, looking after your own health and dealing effectively with professionals and service providers.

What do carers think about Caring with Confidence?
Carers who attended the last sessions commented...
"Very informative, especially for new carers, (I am not and would have welcomed this information years ago). I would recommend it, especially as I wasn't sure about attending at first. Lovely facilitators."
"Coming to this course has given me so much to think about and talk about when I had never had these opportunities before."
"Before I came to the sessions, I felt trapped and isolated. I am now a different person and feel stronger, being able to cope with my caring role. I have learnt something in each session and feel very lucky to have been given the opportunity to attend. I would recommend the sessions to anyone who cares for someone."
