Who we are and what we do

We’re dedicated to improving the lives of carers across South Yorkshire

Beacon South Yorkshire provides a range of services for family and friends who care for their loved ones. Our services are designed to support carers supporting people with substance misuse, disabilities, mental health, dementia, or who are elderly.

Our values

Shining the light for carers living with substance misuse, disabilities, mental health, dementia, or who are elderly, we aim to: –

Connect

1. Welcome any carer without judgement, who are willing to be open, self -reflective and make a personal change.

2. Create connections in a confidential and safe environment whenever needed, so no -one feels alone.

Support

1. Provide well-being support to build strength in dealing with difficult situations.

2. Offer care and skills to support carers’ demands with day-to-day needs.

Hope

1. Build trust to be able to communicate openly to understand personal aims.

2. Look after carers by listening and offering options to enable future opportunities.

What is a carer?

A caregiver or carer is a paid or unpaid member of a person’s social network who helps them with activities of daily living. Since they have no specific professional training, they are often described as informal caregivers.
