Carers UK forum

The Carers UK online forum is a community of people who know exactly how you feel. They may be strangers – at first – but you'll be surprised how sharing an experience, a problem or just having a good old rant to a fellow carer can make a world of difference.

VISIT THE FORUM

You can talk about real issues with people who understand and who can support you through everything caring has to throw at you.

What our members say

The Carers UK online forum is a lifeline. It's very reassuring to know that other people feel the same and it makes you feel that you are a normal person. It's just a help to know that you're not alone. 
Reading other people's experiences makes me realise deep down we're all going through our own ups and downs. It showed me that it was okay to cope at any level, and not to feel bad if others seemed to cope better. 
I joined a few days ago and each time I log on someone else has posted a useful tip, suggestion or some support. Thank you all so much, at last I'm not alone.

What is the forum for?

The Carers UK forum is our online community where you can talk to other carers who understand what you are going through and who can support you through everything caring has to throw at you.

The forum is open to all carers over the age of 18, whatever your circumstances. If you are under the age of 18 we recommend you visit http://www.youngcarers.net which is specifically set up for young carers.

The forum is moderated by volunteers – all of whom have caring experience themselves  with the back up of staff. The forum is for peer-to-peer support and is not monitored by professional advisers.

How do I join?

Anyone can visit the forum and look at the public sections. However, to post on the forum you need to join Carers UK as a member.

When you join Carers UK we ask for a donation to help support our work to reach carers. However, we know that many carers are not in a position to make a donation, which is why we offer free membership. The forum is available to all members, regardless of whether you are able to donate or not.
