Caring for Carers

Most people will become a carer at some point in their lifetime even though they often don’t recognise themselves as being one.  The caring responsibilities will in many cases take up a huge amount of time and energy and when the cared-for person dies, carers may become isolated and lonely. This can cause a number of physical and mental health issues which can become debilitating.

That is why we are delivering the Caring For Carers Bereavement Service in Birmingham, which is aimed at supporting carers who have lost or will soon (e.g. end of life) lose their loved one.

We aim to deliver a person-centred bereavement support service by offering a range of support options which include:

One-to-one support (in-person and online)

A Healing Garden Project

Integration into the Community

Access to a bereaved carers WhatsApp Group

Living Memory Project

The list is not exhaustive and when one of our team contacts the Carer they will identify their individual needs, which may include;

Funeral planning

Financial planning

Identifying other support services

Training and/or employment opportunities

The Caring for Carers bereavement project is delivered by the following organisations:
