What is a carer?

A carer is anyone, including children and adults, who looks after a family member, partner or friend who needs help because of their illness, frailty, disability, a mental health problem or an addiction and cannot cope without their support. The care they give is unpaid. 
 
Halo’s Carers Respite Programme provides unpaid carers with the opportunity to improve their physical and mental wellbeing by participating in exercise, relaxation and nutrition information sessions, with access to Halo Leisure's toning suite. 

An example of the activities that we offer are: holistic therapy workshops, including techniques on managing stress; professional nutrition information and advice around diet and healthy lifestyles; and information on carers rights, entitlements and support available in the local authority area.
 
We support young, parent and older carers. For older carers, we provide free replacement care while you are taking part in any of the activities.
 
Check out the below video from our YouTube channel to hear from two carers that have benefitted from one of our previous programmes. 
 

 

What’s the Cost?
