Carer support groups

Carers Leeds facilitates around 30 carer support groups each month. Group support is a good way to share experiences and get emotional support from other people in the same or a similar situation.

The groups are welcoming and friendly, give carers a break from caring and gives you the opportunity to get advice, information and support tailored towards your caring role.

We run general carer support groups and several specialist carer groups at locations across the city.

Whether you are a parent carer, a young adult carer or you care for someone with dementia, we have groups to suit a wide range of needs. We also run recovery groups for people with mental health issues, their family and friends. There are also two book groups for carers and former carers that meet regularly.

Some groups enjoy activities, well-being sessions and have speakers who may be of particular interest to the group.

**update 17/03/20 – Please note, all carer support groups and face to face events have been cancelled until further notice –

For more information about groups, dates and times, view our carers support group booklet.

The carers support groups map gives details and locations of the various Carers Support Groups held by Carers Leeds each month.
