Although talking doesn’t always solve the problems it can help to relieve feelings of stress and enable someone to find their own solutions. With this in mind, our volunteers are available to offer a listening ear to carers and ex-carers who may be isolated and/or under stress. Our volunteers receive training in listening and counselling skills but they are not professional counsellors. If visits from a volunteer would be difficult we also offer regular telephone support.
How to contact us:
- Contact the Co-ordinator, Joanne Flitton, on 020 8302 8011.
- For further information download the information for carers here.
If you are interested in volunteering for “In Touch”, please contact Joanne Flitton for more information (see above), or download further details here.
Counselling for Carers
Professional counselling for carers is also available. This is also a free service and is provided by volunteer, trainee counsellors who are supervised and supported by a fully qualified counsellor.
