Time for carers

We need your help to raise £30,000 and give unpaid carers the gift of some time for themselves. It's something to look forward to, something to help a person retain their sense of self and a way to reduce their sense of isolation.

Story

Claires story

In 2018, Claire was left with no carers to help look after her elderly mother who needs 24/7 care.

The care agency left us in the lurch 5 1/2 weeks before Christmas. I was due to have an eye operation and my brother had been seriously ill. I was at my wits end. I was very tearful and crying every day. I felt trapped and isolated and just wanted to run away.

We arranged for an urgent carers assessment review and crisis meeting. We couldnt fix the care company situation, but we could offer support and arranged for the funding to give Claire a change of scenery and some time out.

Claire didnt want to leave her mother, so we were able to pay for the family to go on a five day holiday to the coast in a hotel specially adapted for Claires mother.

We had all been stuck within the same four walls the holiday gave us opportunity to relax and gave me the time to think about what I was going to do and put things into perspective. I was able to clear my head and get back on track.

It wasnt even just about being given the money to get away it was about being seen and valued as a carer and given the recognition and support that enabled me to carry on.
