Taking on a challenge is a great way to raise money for Making Space and it’s so rewarding for you too.

David, 33, has cared for his wife for the last 8 years. He was referred to Making Space for carer support after he visited his local GP after feeling stressed.

David has dedicated the last eight years of his life to caring for his wife. She has a range of mental health problems. Our team support David in his role as a carer, providing him with the practical and emotional support and guidance to assist him.

David says “I visited my local GP a few years ago after I found myself feeling stressed. They gave me an information leaflet for Making Space carer support so I gave them a call. Since my first visit to the service, I have regularly visited a support worker allowing me to share my experiences, as well as being able to meet with other carers and hear their stories.”

“If you’re feeling down, you have the opportunity to meet up for a coffee, even for just an hour’s chat with someone from the service allows you to offload your stress and any pressures you have – making you feel better afterwards.

“Being a carer has left me stronger and more determined. My wife has many complex issues that require a lot of information and knowledge, but it’s important not to give up – take it day by day.”
