Dementia Information and Support for Carers
We work with carers from all walks of life and are proud to bring people together. We hold weekly carers groups. It's a chance to have a break and see expert guest speakers. We have detailed knowledge to help you get appropriate support and will work by your side throughout. Our dedicated teams work closely with you across the Birmingham Council area with carers groups in four locations.
Caring for someone with Dementia can at times be difficult, exhausting, lonely and overwhelming. We at DISC work with and for those carers, to enable them to continue their caring role.

You might not have any experience of dealing with services and benefits before and it can be exhausting and confusing. We can help you with filling out forms, being with you at assessments and explaining how it all works. We run support groups for people just like you. Our groups are weekly and carers can get together with other people in a similar situation.Our groups are like a big family. It is all very informal and we will give you a drink and a snack to keep you going. We will listen to you, respect your confidentiality, and offer some suggestions that may make things better. We don’t want to make decisions for you, but help you to better understand your situation, and make informed decisions for you and your loved one.
