The Covid-19 pandemic has been especially tough for those who are looking after a family member or friend who relies on them for support. We know that lockdown has caused many carers to feel isolated and forgotten. For many the pressures of their role have increased and they haven’t been able to access support in the usual way. Local services are still there to support carers over the phone and online. If you’re a carer and need information, advice or support please contact Derbyshire Carers Association. T: 01773 833833 #CarersMatter www.derbyshirecarers.co.uk
