About this cause

We're a group who supports all unpaid carers and ex-carers in Honiton and the local districts; we offer weekly respite with various activities like arts and crafts. Carers are often very lonely and isolated, and by having regular respite the carers' health and wellbeing is improved. Peer support is essential for carers to avoid burnout, particularly after the awful year they have all experienced during the pandemic.

How this cause brings people in the community together

We offer respite session to unpaid carers, along with peer support which is as essential for the carers wellbeing as the respite itself. We work closely with other support groups and signpost to other appropriate sources if required. We also train carers in their role and support them throughout and after their caring role comes to an end.
