LGBTQ & Caring (NI)

Caring can be an isolating experience, and being a carer from the LGBTQ+ community can add additional challenges.

Some people feel the support services are 'not for them' and won't understand their needs. Some people may access support late or not at all because they anticipate stigma or discrimination. This adds to the impact on the carer's life, and can increase feelings of isolation.

However caring affects you, we're here. This booklet explores the experiences of LGBTQ+ carers, and outlines what support is available.
