KS2 Bath

A peer led support group for carers/supporters of people with mental health issues. We are carers ourselves and understand the issues faced by people helping and supporting someone with a mental health difficulty.

 

We are involved with a lot of statutory services raising issues that are important to carers and getting the services to recognise and consider carers needs and views within their services. We believe that carers need information to help support the people they care for and are setting up meetings with commissioners and executives to ensure the carers voice is heard.
