Care & Support

We are busy creating some information to show national and local care and support resources in the UK & Ireland which may be of use. We are also trying to build a buddy system and setup regional networks. These things take time, especially when it’s all done voluntarily in people’s spare time. Please bear with us whilst we get our act together. In the meantime, please see some useful links below.
