Swineshead Medical Group is working to support both adult and young carers using or working within our organisation, the team are currently working towards the Lincolnshire Carers Quality Award.

Both Adult and Young carers can be affected by the impact of juggling an unpaid caring role, with employment and/or education and everyday life. The practical and emotional implications of caring for a family member , friend or neighbour can be stressful and demanding.

The reality for many carers is that the disengage from education or leave employment, struggle with everyday demands and lose sight of their own health and welllbeing to focus on their caring responsibilities.

If you use our services please let us know if you have caring responsibilities so we can offer help and support should you need it.

Please contact Swineshead Medical Group to let us know you are a Carer and have a chat about your situation and how we can help support you.
