How we can help you

Supporting a loved one

If you’re visiting this site as a friend, family member or carer who is concerned about someone else, you can use this site to find out more from the point of view of others in the same situation. We also have information about the experiences of carers, and family members on the following topics:

Autism siblings
Autism grandparents
Autism parents
Parents of children with congenital heart disease
Dementia carers
BME mental health carers
Caring for someone with a terminal illness

Wondering how to talk to friends and family about your own health? It’s not always easy to talk to friends and family about our health, or things that are worrying us, and it can be difficult for them to know how to help. So why not let other people do the talking for you? Collect relevant pages or videos from across the website in your scrapbook and share it with friends and family members by email or on social media.


Please use the form below to tell us what you think of the site. We’d love to hear about how we’ve helped you, how we could improve or if you have found something that’s broken on the site. We are a small team but will try to reply as quickly as possible.

Please note that we are unable to accept article submissions or offer medical advice. If you are affected by any of the issues covered on this website and need to talk to someone in confidence, please contact The Samaritans or your Doctor.
