Social Care and Counselling Services

What we do

YOU provides services to support those with mental health issues and disabilities, however, sometimes they overlap, which is where our Social Care and Counselling Services come in. These services support those in need who would like to connect to their local community, therefore these services work alongside individuals and their circles of support in order to build their confidence and their independence so that individuals can live the life they want to.

My Time Service for Carers

We know that caring can be challenging – and that making time for yourself can be difficult.

My Time is a new service that helps carers find time for themselves – whether that’s time to attend appointments, family events or special occasions.

My Time isn’t a traditional service. Our staff and volunteers are flexible and will work with you to create a plan of activities and outings that your loved one might like to do on a good day – like a trip out for lunch – and alternatives for quiet days – like trying out a new craft or game at home.

We know that caring can be challenging, but we also know that time away from your caring role gives you the chance to recharge your batteries. Our aim is to make that time something to look forward to – a highlight for both you and the person you care for.

Contact the My Time office to arrange a home visit to discuss how we can help.
