Swindon Carers Centre

Swindon Carers Centre

Thanks to your support, Global’s Make Some Noise has been able to provide funding to organisations like Swindon Carers Centre, who support young carers, and help them to enjoy a life outside of their caring roles.

The centre provides a support and activities including one-week residential course, where the young carers can enjoy a break from caring, and take care of their own emotional wellbeing.

Caroline’s Story

Caroline, is the sole carer for her dad. Her dad has limited mobility, which leaves them both socially isolated much of the time. Caroline helps with cooking and cleaning in addition to helping sort her dad’s medication and administers it when he’s not able to.

Through the help of Swindon Carers Centre, Caroline has been able to take a much-needed break from her caring and meet others like her. She’s been given a space to talk about her worries and feelings with people who truly understand her situation. The centre has even helped Caroline access health appointments and worked with adult services to help her dad become more independent through equipment such as a stair lift.
