Would you like to chat, get support and share your experience with other Carers online?
Carers’ Trust has three online communities, one for young Carers, under 18; one for young adult Carers aged 16-25, and one for adult Carers
Carers Trust works to improve support, services and recognition for anyone living with the challenges of caring, unpaid, for a family member or friend who is ill, frail, disabled or has mental health or addiction problems.
Babble has been created as an online space where those aged under 18 who are caring for a family member or friend can chat, share their experiences and access information and advice.
The site aims to bring together young carers from across the UK in an online space which is safe, fun and supportive.
The online team are on hand to answer any questions you might have, and to offer support and advice via e-mail or one-to-one webchats.

Matter has been created to provide an online space for young adult carers aged 16–25 to connect, share their experiences, and access trusted support.
The vision of the site is to bring together young adult carers from across the UK, as well as those who work with young adult carers, via an online space which is safe, fun, and most of all, inspiring. There is an online community team on hand to provide support as and when needed, by messaging or email.
If you’re aged 16–25 and are caring for a family member or friend, Matter is a platform for you to share your story with others and to hear the stories of those with similar experiences to your own. Your thoughts, your world, matter.

Are you looking after someone who wouldn’t be able to cope on their own?
If you are feeling isolated or you find it hard to get out, our friendly and welcoming online community is waiting for you.
Come to our chatroom to talk through the daily realities of being a carer, or just have a break and some light-hearted fun. Join or start a conversation on our discussion boards where you can ask questions and your advice and opinion is highly valued, or tell your story with hundreds of other carers on your blog space.
This is your own personal carer community, so get involved http://www.carers.org/carers-space
