A great way for carers to feel less isolated and more supported is by joining The Carers Trust Live Chat Forum via the Carers Trust website. Many carers find this form of social communication fits in well around the demands of their caring role. There are lots of topics open for discussion in the Live Chat forum, such as; Benefits Q&A, Working & Caring, Health & Lifestyle, Your Rights… plus lots more, but if the topic you’re interested in isn’t there, then simply ask the question and wait for others to join in the discussion.

Keep a Carer blog
Some carers find that keeping a blog (or online diary) of their life can help them to deal with the ups and downs that daily life can throw at them. Even following someone else’s blog can provide insight and reassurance to those who read it and find they are not alone in sharing certain caring situations or circumstances.
