Support for Carers this Christmas

Whilst it can be joyous and festive, for some it is ‘just another day’ and for others. 2020 was a really difficult time, stirring up some uncomfortable feelings. Despite this, we continued trying to navigate our way around or simply through it. 

"Christmas means something different to all of us."

It can give us peace of mind to know that support can be just a phone call away. So, to make things a little easier, we have put together this blog.

We have a list of national organisations that are offering practical and emotional support over the Christmas period, which we can view, edit and download.

And below - we're sharing all the ways the Mobilise Community will be here for us all, over the Christmas period.

"Our Mobilise community is here to support us all over the Christmas period."

Free Individual Support Calls

We can book a confidential 30 minute call with a member of our Carers Support Team. These can be helpful to talk through something that’s on our mind, or if we just need a listening ear.

We have increased our number of booking slots over the Christmas period which includes evenings and weekends so we can be here for when you need us.

Find out more about our support calls here.

Christmas Day Cuppa

All unpaid carers are invited to join us for a Christmas Day Cuppa! At 11am, James (our CEO and co-founder, and all round great guy), we open our virtual room, for us to come together for an hour. Come and connect, have a chat and end with a moment of uplift - and all before the Queen's Speech!

Find out more about our cuppas here.

If it's your first cuppa, you'll need to quickly register here first. Otherwise, simply join us using this link.

Social media 

We have a growing Mobilise community on Facebook, which all unpaid carers are invited to be a part of. As a network for support, we share tips, life hacks, advice, recommendations and even jokes! We're very fond of a comedy gif! And there are plenty of words of encouragement when needed.

Please do come and join us here.

E-support package

We send updates, carer stories and useful information, as well as blogs, resources, and much more in one email, straight to your inbox. Join our emailing list of over 1000 carers by signing up here.

Do you know someone that might find this helpful? Please share this blog with them and your community, and help us to connect and support more unpaid carers over Christmas (and beyond).
