Carers Support Groups

A few words from a fellow carer can be a lifeline.

Are you currently caring for someone living with a diagnosis of PSP or CBD? If so, why not join one of our Carers Support Groups?

The groups offer a relaxed and friendly environment for carers to get together once a month, online via Zoom, to gain friendship and support. To talk about feelings, share experiences and generally discuss things that you may not wish to discuss in front of a loved one.

The format is informal, to encourage people to open up and discuss anything that is on their mind. Regional meetings are held in the evenings and you can find your region and meeting dates below.
