Members’ stories

These are true stories, submitted by our members. The first, My Secret, is about becoming a carer, and like all carers, it was not by choice!

Have you got a story to share? It may be happy, sad, or funny? You can include pictures too. If so please share it with us using Your Story Form.

We also would like to promote your creativity, so if you took a wonderful picture, wrote a poem or a short story, painted a painting or knitted something lovely, please send it to us (or a photo of it) and we will share it with our members. You can see what others have created here.
