Feedback from Carers Groups about how the Group Grant has made a difference

Aspergers East Anglia Carers Group

‘The grant enabled the charity to purchase a zoom account for 12 months and some postage stamps to be able to send information and copies of benefit applications to Carers. The zoom meetings have been really successful and well received by the Carers we support some of who have been extremely isolated during and since the lock downs. The Zoom facility has enabled us to reach out to people in remote places across the county including people who have not accessed our services previously. We  resumed our monthly  face to face meetings in Norwich at the beginning of the year and due to the positive impact the zoom meetings have had allowing those in remote places to connect with others we will continue to also hold them once a month giving our carers the opportunity to meet twice a month if they wish.’
