FOCUS: befriending unpaid carers

Faithworks’ FOCUS project is there to “walk alongside” people as they care, giving them space to talk, and a way-in to activities that can build their self-confidence and social network.


Margaret is a volunteer befriender with FOCUS
– you can read her story on LinkedIn:

‘Chief Cook and Bottle Washer’ is a film created by the Bournemouth University PIER partnership and 11 male carers over the age of 85.  Carers share their insights on being an older carer; how life has changed and their key messages for practitioners.
