Carers Leeds now offers a new carers befriending service.
This project supports carers aged 18- 65 who are experiencing anxiety, depression, carer stress or other mental health issues and who feel they can improve their mental wellbeing with the support of a volunteer befriender.
Our trained volunteer befrienders enable carers to:-
- Talk about their caring role
- Talk about their mental health
- Improve their mental wellbeing
- Make social contacts in their local area
- Share their worries and concerns
To find out more about becoming a volunteer befriender or if you are a carer who would like support from the service, please contact Nikki Pattinson, Carers Befriending Co-ordinator firstname.lastname@example.org

This service is funded by Leeds Fund: Strategic Grant in association with Asda Foundation.
