  • Mental Health Carers’ Service

The aim is to support you in your caring role by helping with issues like Housing, Social Services, Council Services, Welfare Benefits, Maximising your Income, Charitiable Grants, Leisure activities, Transport, Local Support Groups, NHS services, Respite and Carers Assessments.  In addition to the range of services the Carer’s Hub provides, the Hub can let you know about other organisations and make referrals for you, if needed.

Support can be offered face-to-face or by telephone depending on what best meets your current circumstances.

Wednesday Talks.   The talks are a chance for those caring for someone with a mental illness to meet others who carry out a similar role, and to share experiences and knowledge. A guest speaker also attends, offering their insight on subjects fitting to mental health carers.

The talks are normally the first Wednesday of each month at the Mosaic Clubhouse. Spaces are limited so please contact before attending. You can sign up to an email list to get emails before every Wednesday Talk with full information.
