We help carers with form filling, advocacy and intervention.
We run various coffee mornings where you can meet up with other carers and have a chat, putting the world to right!
We also have monthly forum meetings where you as a carer can have a say and an input in how services are changed and developed in the borough, either through the Local Authority or within Health.
For the carer to have some well earned respite, WeLoveCarers run several groups where the children or young adults they care for can socialise.
INSIGHT was the original name for the charity. When the charity changed its name to WeLoveCarers, INSIGHT became the support group for carers of adults.

This support group is for adults with disabilities from the age of 25 upwards. It runs every Wednesday evening from 6pm to 9pm at Queens Cross Network. Whilst at this group the young adults are learning life skills, taking part in new hobbies and workshops and run their tuck shop. There is a charge of £5 per session.
CHAOS! play scheme was founded in 2009. It originated as a small group run by volunteers for children with Autism ranging from ages 4 to 19.
