A healthy body and mind means we can live life to the full

Better self care helps us take control of our own health and well-being. Whether we want to have a healthier lifestyle, to better manage our long-term problems, or enhance our mental well-being, simple changes can make a big difference.

The year of self care is not just a programme, but an invitation to think about different types of self-care. Each month will have lots of local information and events aimed at helping make positive changes; whatever our age, ability or state of health.

Carer Wellbeing

Carers are relatives, friends or neighbours who look after or support people who are ill, frail or disabled, without being paid. We will be focusing on helping carers look after their own health.

Is there life after caring?

No longer being a carer can leave a huge gap in life which can be difficult to fill. Life can be very different to what it was before and it may take time to adjust. The circumstances of the change may also affect how quickly you adapt.
