Graph showing the results to the question Since the pandemic started have your digital skills improved? 50% said yes and only 2% said no

There are many organisations out there that support those that we look after. But finding support for us and our caring role, can often be more challenging. As evidenced by the nearly 22% of us who had never accessed support outside of the Mobilise community.

There is a variety of support available, from the local support of a carer centre to other voluntary organisations. Of course, for many of us, support may just feel like a break or respite, from our caring role. To allow us a moment to recharge our batteries. Take a look at these two quick articles on who can help and our advice on the first steps you can take to get support.

Get support in your caring role, contact your local carer centre. Find out who is closest using this nifty tool from the Carers Trust.
