Established in 2000, Beacon South Yorkshire provides a range of services supporting carers across South Yorkshire who are caring for people with disabilities, mental health, dementia, substance misuse, or who are elderly.

Our focus is to support care givers. We aim to help them to cope with the competing demands on their time, as well as managing their own well being, so they can do a better job of looking after their cared-for significant others, family member or friend.

The services we offer:

  • One to one support sessions
  • Training
  • Complementary therapies
  • One to one Counselling sessions
  • Social events / Respite
  • Monthly coffee mornings
  • Support and beauty therapies
  • Drop in sessions Tuesdays & Thursdays 10:30am till 1:30pm
  • Telephone support
  • Other group activities.
  • Group support sessions

Our services are delivered through a team of trained volunteers, many of whom have had personal experience of the challenges facing carers.

All we ask is for a small donation to help keep this wonderful service going so we keep supporting the carers of our community.
