looking for fellow carers/support in Derby

Share your ideas about the practical side of caring.
Hi im new to the site i care for my husband who was born with spina bifida and hydrocephalus.
He also has other health problems of double incontinance, mytrovanoff, clalsped ankle and poor mobility. We have two children under the age of 10. I am intrested in talking to people in similar situation, im finding caring for my husband, bringing up two children, running a home and working full time very difficult at the moment and would love to hear from you, advice would be greatly recieved. Information on support or services in the area of derby would be helpfull too.

Many thanks
