About this cause
Signpost supports anyone with an unpaid caring role in Stockport. This includes young carers from the age of just six years old. Being a carer for a loved one can be isolating and challenging in so many ways. Nevertheless, we believe that it shouldn't be a barrier to a fulfilling life. We offer a range of services, activities and support that reduce the likelihood of carer breakdown.
How this cause brings people in the community together
Caring for someone can be isolating and challenging in normal circumstances. Throughout coronavirus, the pressures on carers have been immense - and there are more carers than ever. This project will encourage carers, whether they are experienced or at the beginning of their caring journey, to support each other and learn how to take care of themselves so they can continue to care for others.
