Situation

The Living to Carer project aims to solve the following problems and aims to : Reduce the risk of social isolation experienced by carers Reduce the risk of mental and physical ill health of carers who are at risk of ill health due to missed appointments and delayed diagnosis of serious illnesses Increase access to information and resources often

Solution

By bringing carers together for peer support, carers will have a reduced sense of isolation and will feel that they are not alone. By creating a carers network and providing carers with resources and information to support their role as carers, carers are less stressed at understanding what facilities are available to support them reducing the risk of ill health through stress and lack of personal care.
