SAVS will be holding an online information session for you to learn about what’s on offer for unpaid carers.

Let’s Care Together – An Introduction To A Programme For Carers (Friday 23rd February from 10.10am to 11.10am, online via Zoom)

Business in the Community and leading healthcare provider Simplyhealth, have come together to co-create Let’s Care Together. Join us to learn how this new programme will support unpaid carers (over 18) with their wellbeing, through pairing them with an online mentor.

Research shows that unpaid Carers have worse wellbeing outcomes than non-carers, and are likely to be time-poor due to their caring responsibilities. The programme aims to support carers by streamlining access to resources and providing practical support across the four pillars of wellbeing: Physical, Mental, Social and Financial. This support will include helping people with caring responsibilities to connect with friends and family, community groups and wider support, find wellbeing information and gain financial confidence.

Their volunteer mentors will work on a one-to-one basis with each Carer on one or all of the following, depending on their preference: ​

  • Increasing their connection to their local community, improving overall social wellbeing and reducing any feelings of isolation. ​
  • Supporting their financial independence and knowledge of financial tools/support available.​
  • Access to practical support and tools for their physical wellbeing. ​
  • Being a regular listening ear and friendly face who is there to offer support and guidance.​

Join this session to learn more about how your beneficiaries, or colleagues with caring responsibilities could benefit from the programme. Book your free place
