Carers Befriending

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 nikki.pattinson@carersleeds.org.uk

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