Now that the website is starting to take shape it seems like an appropriate moment to suggest that Carers share their stories via the website.
This can be in written form or in video format. If you want to do it in writing then simply email your text and pictures to us and we’ll do the rest.
If you want to make a video you can do it yourself or we’ll arrange for someone to visit you and simply record and publish what you want to say.
Why would I want to share my story?
Carers are not a static group of people. There’s a constant change as some people stop becoming Carers and other people become a Carer for the first time. If you cast your mind back to when you first started caring you’ll remember how difficult it all was. You knew very little and you probably spent a considerable amount of time learning new skills and gathering information. If you’re willing to share your experience it will help new Carers to get up to speed more quickly and it will be somewhere where professionals and politicians can see for themselves the real effects of their legislation and their services.
