Welcome to the LGBT Carers Forum!

Here you can find information posted by carers for carers and chat to others who understand how you feel.

Looking for support? Got some useful tips to share? Want to tell your story? Why not start a discussion on the Discussion Board?

(Remember, you can search for anything you want to know at the top of this page)

This is the only online forum of its kind in the UK offering support for lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans carers and we would love to know what you think. Please send your comments to

For some carers, meeting other carers face-to-face is the best way for you to get the information and support that you need. Therefore, there will be a monthly support group for carers to come along to on the last Monday of the month – either as a one-off drop in to pick up information or for more regular support. This group will understand your needs as an LGBT carer and can be your first step into other LGBT friendly services to support you.
