Keeping-in-Touch

Keeping-in-Touch is friendly and informal telephone support, but it is so much more than a chat. 

Kit calls deal with a variety of needs to support carers with difficulties and concerns that come with the caring role. These include juggling family life with caring, caring for someone with dementia or other health issues or coping with bereavement. Kit calls can be as regular and as frequent as required. They can be a lifeline for many carers.

Our team don’t have all the answers, but they have a wealth of experience that comes from working with carers over a long period of time. The service works closely with our professional support team and is able to connect carers with professional support, home visits, information and advice and practical help with things like benefits, form filing and the many other areas that support carers lives.
