Caring with Confidence is a new, free programme to help make a positive difference to carers and the people they care
for, by improving their health and well-being.

Funded by the Department of Health, Caring with Confidence provides support for carers in England accessible
through free local group sessions, self-study workbooks and online, where carers can learn skills, get advice and
information, talk and share experiences.

Quote for media:

“We hope to reach out to carers, particularly those hard-to-reach carers who perhaps don’t even see themselves as
such, and provide appropriate support to help make a positive difference to their lives.”

Graham Brindley, Caring with Confidence Project Director
