Carers

There are 15 centres in our Carers’ Network and approximately 39% of our wider network also support carers, giving them the skills they need to take advantage of the benefits the online world can offer.

Our research has shown that digital skills and community support provide value to carers’ lives, by connecting them to others in similar positions, reducing isolation and empowering them to take control of their health and the ones they care for. Supporting carers in local venues or their own homes mean that the Carers’ Specialist Network can help to improve the lives of carers through digital.
