The Princess Royal Trust Lanarkshire Carers Centre also run groups for people caring for those living with HIV.
Carers support groups, facilitated by carers support workers, provide the ideal opportunity for carers to get together on a regular basis for mutual support and information exchange. These groups operate a strict confidentiality code so carers find a safe place to explore problems and discuss the impact of caring on their lives.
The International women's group for carers is a Lanarkshire group which provides a resource for people from a Black or ethnic minority community.
If you would like more information or to find the group closest to you, as well as training opportunities and pampering services, please contact Lesley Fishleigh on 01236 755 550.
