NORFOLK CARERS SUPPORT

 

Are you a carer? Chill4us Carers is the social network community for family carers  and is about, information, humour, fantasy and fun, chat with carers and finding help when the caring ends.  We are a peer support group offering carer resources and have experience of the isolation felt by family carers, the struggle with finding grants, money and the general difficulty of finding help for carers.  We know that  when you become an unpaid family carer you can face a life of poverty, ill health and frustration.  There is information and advice for carers in our carers message boards, our website and free daily newspaper.

Ours is a friendly independent non profit voluntary organization for carers, with a constitution and committee funded by Norfolk County Council offering friendly help for unpaid carers.

We initially got together with an msn website in 2002 and later this website evolved in 2005.

Chill4Us Carers is a small charity working to end isolation for carers and former carers.   We care for carers in Norfolk and across the UK and helping when a carer needs to rebuild a life of their own. We rely on donations, fundraising and gifts to be able to fund our services so if you would like to contribute towards our costs, then it would be much appreciated so we are able to continue to run Chill4us as the family for carers that our members tell us it is.

We are unpaid family carers or ex carers who do this to support one another.  We do it because we care.  Our members have experience in all aspects of Care needs. If they can’t answer your questions or solve your problem they will know someone who can.

Anyone can become a carer in an instant, nobody is immune, it’s not until it happens to YOU that caring for a sick or disabled loved one is understood and the everyday struggles a carer lives with 24/7, isolation and social exclusion is a big factor.

Chill4us is a sanctuary for many carers, it’s somewhere they can go and be among other carers without having to leave the loved ones they are caring for, we provide a valuable service often offering a lifeline for carers who are isolated so that they no longer feel alone.  We have an arcade and a forum, which is used constantly throughout the day and lonely nights.

    hi im a carer for my mum who is 88, i am 57.
    i do get out for a couple of beers 2-3 times a week.
    i do most things for mum as she has poor mobility, so i cook all meals, shop, keep house clean, garden, do washing/laundery, pay bills.
    the thing i miss most is a lady friend to love /take for romantic meals, love my football on tv, reading,tv detectives.
    ive been a carer for 3 years now, dont get much help from sister, none at all in fact, my brother visits once a week, but im on anti -depressants due to this plus being out of work for 3 years prior to this, thanks for listening

    As carers – they sometimes need support from counsellors to help them see a way forward in their own lives – I am an ordinary woman who is a survivor or DV and I havd cared for my parents
    I needed support and I am appalled to find out that my ex perpetrator is a counsellor advertising his services to carers. Please be aware of the background of any counsellors you may have supporting your carers as the British counselling association does not have the ability to examine the background of its counsellors
