Through our peer support groups, you can meet other carers who are in a similar situation.

By sharing stories, knowledge and experience in a safe and inclusive space, you can gain valuable insight, information and find close connections with others.

Thank you for reminding me that I am not alone and for this resource. This is very reassuring.

Carer Gateway offers two options to connect with other carers:

In-person peer support group

Meet with other carers from your local area. You can contact our Peer Support Coordinators at to find a group near you.

Online community forum

Carer Gateway has a dedicated online forum where you can have written discussions with other carers. The online forum will let you create a unique profile from where you can either start a new discussion or add to an existing discussion.
