Carers Trust Heart of England have a joint project with Coventry University to offer parents and caregivers of children with autism a free online course to improve their emotional health and wellbeing starting in January 2019. Would you like to cope better, feel more in control and be more resilient? Over 300 parents have attended the face-to-face version of the course with many parents reporting improved mental wellbeing, hope and gratitude.


They are now looking for UK parents and caregivers of children who are under 18 years of age, to take part in a study evaluating a digital group self-management version of the programme, called iHope. Find out more and sign-up using this link

Continuing to support the needs of our local community

Whoever you are, whatever the problem

During the coming year we will continue to provide a single point of access for local people wanting information and advice.

In addition we are supporting Kingston Council and colleagues in the voluntary sector to establish the Connected Kingston website, which has information about local Health and Wellbeing services.

This project aims to make it easier for people to 'get connected' with health and wellbeing services within the community. It is anticipated that easy access to clubs, organisations and health services will help local people to help themselves and potentially prevent wellbeing issues arising.

This project is distinct from and complementary to our work in kiaa, which focuses on community services providing information and advice , from information about personal rights and responsibilities to obtaining help to pursue a complex case at a court or Tribunal.

Universal Credit continues to make national headlines and we will monitor future developments. In the meantime we are working with partner organisations to make sure people get the best possible support in claiming Universal Credit locally. Here  is our Action Plan...

Our online resources are available to all information and advice teams at the click of a button .
