Many carers have had a difficult time during the pandemic. Most are caring for vulnerable or older people who are shielding and many services, such as day centres, have had to temporarily close, leaving carers with few options for respite. Many carers will not have been able to take time for themselves and are feeling overwhelmed and anxious.
Carer Support Wiltshire is a local charity that supports unpaid carers. Thanks to funding from the Marlborough Area Board, they are currently able to offer carers in the Marlborough area free counselling sessions through Wiltshire Mind. Spaces are limited, so if you are a carer and feel you would benefit from counselling, call Carer Support Wiltshire on 0800 181 4118 or email email@example.com as soon as possible.
