Are you someone who spends some of your time supporting another person who could not manage without you? This could be practical, personal or emotional support. The person you support could be a friend, a chosen family member, a child, a neighbour, a partner or a birth family member. You may be caring for someone who struggles with substance misuse, someone who is frail, someone who has a disability or someone who has a mental health condition.

We could all become Carers at any point in our lives and 1 in 10 LGBTQ+ people are an unpaid Carer.

Come along to find out more about our Project to support and raise awareness of LGBTQ+ Carers living in London. You might be someone who is a Carer, someone who thinks they might be a Carer or someone who comes into contact with Carers at work.

We run Peer Support and Wellbeing events for LGBTQ+ Carers both online and in-person. We deliver training to LGBTQ+ organisations to raise awareness of Carers and we deliver training to organisations who work with Carers on how to be inclusive and supportive of LGBTQ+ Carers.

Our Peer Support Group Events

We welcome all LGBTQ+ Carers of London to join us for a chat, the chance to meet other meet other LGBTQ+ Carers and enjoy a hot drink on us!

A Carer provides unpaid support to someone who could not manage without them. This support could be practical, emotional or personal. Anyone can become a Carer at any time in their life and 1 in 10 LGBTQ+ people are a Carer.

For example, a Carer could be:

  • Someone supporting a friend emotionally who struggles with substance misuse
  • Someone caring for their partner who has dementia.
  • Someone who does the shopping for a neighbour who has PTSD.
  • Someone who goes to hospital appointments with an ex-partner who has cancer.
  • Someone keeping an eye on the mental health of their chosen family members by helping them to keep on top of bills and helping out with cooking.

If you are an LGBTQ+ Carer living in London we would love to meet you.
