Many carers tell us that they find it helpful and encouraging to hear the stories of other carers. Some carers also draw strength from sharing their story, knowing that others may benefit from their experience.

We are inviting carers to use this website to share their experiences by writing a little information about themselves. This could take in the form of:

  • a journal of a single day or a week
  • a single caring related event, an experience or an issue you have had
  • an overview of your caring duties
  • what you enjoy and what you find difficult about caring.

You can be anonymous if you wish or share your name.

If you are a professional, this could be a case study or an example – please change names and locations to protect the subject’s identity. Carers may recognize themselves and it is important to get their permission before submitting.

Email us your story.
