Are you caring for a family member or loved one and require support?

Beacon South Yorkshire (BeaconSY) is a local charity that provides support to any unpaid carer who is caring for a family member or loved one in an unpaid capacity.

They are based at Riverside Business Exchange (RBX), Sheffield Road, Rotherham S60 1FL.

All staff at Beacon South Yorkshire have lived experience of a caring role, so from the minute you walk through the door you will be greeted by someone who knows what it is like to care for someone and the impact this can have on your own life.

BeaconSY provides support to unpaid carers through counselling, one-to-one support, telephone support and holistic / relaxation therapies. They also open their doors for drop-in sessions on Wednesdays at 11.00am to 1.00pm every week, offering the chance to meet with other carers in a welcoming environment.

If you wish to refer to BeaconSY, call 01709 285388. This is also the number for telephone support to help if, as a carer, you feel isolated or alone and need some help or advice.

The charity also has volunteer opportunities for various roles. If you are interested in volunteering, email olivia@beaconsy.org.uk.
