Carers Leeds understand that carers can become isolated and lonely as a result of their caring role. Although many carers live with the person they care for, they still feel isolated, particularly if they have lost contact with friends and family and find it difficult to leave the home. They work with carers to reduce this isolation, finding solutions unique to each carer.
To help tackle this, Carers Leeds have two dedicated projects that aim to reduce social isolation in carers across Leeds.
The projects are divided into two groups, one for carers aged under 50, and the other works with carers over 50.
