A little support makes a big difference

Invite them out to an outing or event together

Help carers by organising activities you can do together to relax. This might be small – like bringing over a magazine they like to read or making them a cup of tea.

If you’re inviting them out for coffee or an activity, give them the option to either include the person they care for or to go along by themselves. Keep the invitation open and flexible.
