The project also provides information, advice and signposting for carers, running a monthly Carers Support Group called Fursoth (which means ‘take rest’ in Bengali).
St Hilda’s has been working with, and supporting, carers for more than a decade and this innovative project complements its other social care provision.

“I was about to have to leave my part time job to look after my mother full time, but St Hilda’s arranged day centre respite for my mother and contacted social services for permanent help. Because of this I was able to keep working and caring.”
“Your service helped me a lot during a very stressful time. I couldn’t have coped without this.”
