Carers’ Stories

As a carer, it’s easy to feel isolated and that no-one understands what you’re going through.  We’ve collected some stories from other carers to give you a glimpse into the lives of others in similar situations.  We hope that you will be able to get something out of reading their stories.

Margaret’s Story – Mother of a child with Autistic Spectrum Disorder.  Carer for 3 years since official diagnosis.

Jean’s Story – Mother of a lady with Chronic M.E.  Carer for 4 years.

John’s Story – Father of a boy with mental health issues.

Laura’s Story – Family with two children with additional support needs.

We hope to add more carer stories over time.  Please check back for the latest updates.  If you would like to add your story to this page, we’d love to hear from you.  Email
