Carers Support Group - Co-Facilitator: (Learning Difficulties - Worthing)

Working alongside the Support Worker, to provide a confidential space for carers to meet on a regular basis to off-load and get information and support. A number of our groups are generic carer groups, others are for specific conditions: i.e. mental health, dementia, parent carer, learning disabilities etc. :

  • Providing¬†active listening, response, reassurance and personalised support to enable carers to share emotions to reduce stress and feelings of loneliness and isolation.
  • Identifying carer needs.
  • Signposting carers to our countywide Response Line for further support and onward referrals to the appropriate service and/or feeding back to the specialist support worker for further action to be taken on a 1:1 basis.

Practical tasks may be required at some groups: i.e. setting up the room and tea & coffee making duties.
