In Our Shoes is a user-led Dementia Carers Peer Support Group that has been running for over a decade. Carers often become isolated through no fault of their own and face obstacles when trying to have honest conversations and get honest answers to their questions when addressing professionals. We deliver a regular peer support group for carers of people living with dementia at all stages, to bring them together to share information, ideas, their reality and their experiences with others.
