The Carers United project is a collaboration between Southwark Carers and The Challenging Behaviour Foundation (CBF). We have trained volunteers who are able to offer support to Carers of people who exhibit extreme challenging behaviour.
Caring for someone with challenging behaviour can be very stressful and difficult and Carers United Volunteers are trained to provide help, support and share their personal experience with families looking after someone with challenging behaviour.
Families are matched with the volunteer with the most appropriate experience who will provide ongoing support both online and via telephone. The support is free and can vary from practical advice to emotional support. The Carers United volunteers have full access to professional support and guidance from Southwark Carers.
