Here are the results from yesterday’s Mobilise Moments poll.

Can you access more support?

Yesterday we asked: As a result of the lockdown easing are you now (or very soon) able to access more support than before?

39.5% of us are experiencing some level of closures to services that we would like to access, whilst 44% of us said they were unable to answer or answered other, mostly saying that they did not access any support.

Support for our caring role is essential for lots of reasons, mentally it relieves the pressure of everything being reliant on us. We're able to improve our wellbeing by spending more time on ourselves and it can remove some of the barriers which can create isolation.

So who can help? Suzanne, Mobilise's Head of Carer Support, has pulled together this great signposting document to point you in the direction of where you might be able to access support for your caring role. After all, previous Mobilise Moments have show that significant numbers of us don't get a break and most of us are concerned about our mental health.

If you require support specific to the condition/s of the person you care for take a look at our guide to condition-specific support.

Finally, if you do feel like you need some help but don't know where to turn, book a free, no-strings call with our carer support team. We're available seven days a week from 9am to 10pm.

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