Hello there

This online community has been up and running for nearly 6 months now. We are delighted that so many of you have joined us (there's over 700 of you now!!)

Your posts are amazing. Thank you so much for making this community such a success.

Very soon I have to report back to my bosses about how the community is getting on. It would be wonderful if you could let me know what you think about the community, and how it has helped (if indeed it has).

Just a couple of sentences will do.

If you'd prefer to share your thoughts with me privately please just message me.

Many, many thanks

Sarah

Thank so much for this :)

Sarah, I wanted to thank you and Mencap for all your work in developing and running this network, which has been so helpful – both in terms of offering specialist information and in addressing the isolation that many of us feel.

It is the first time I have ventured into social media and I wouldn’t have done so if the network hadn’t been endorsed and monitored by Mencap. It genuinely has created a sense of community which I haven’t experienced before as a carer and has also given me a strong personal commitment to Mencap as an organisation.

Thank you - it really does make a difference.

You are very welcome. I love doing this job.

I have not asked a question here. I get the digests emailed to me and I've occasionally offered what little advice I think might be of use. One day I may want to ask something and it's reassuring to know this forum exists and that Mencap exists. Please tell your bosses that this forum has value to me and my family. Thank you.

Thank you - I will pass on your comments. Best wishes, Sarah

I find it really good as I don't belong to any carers groups or suchlike. It's a really valuable space to let off steam, share experiences and ask for advice.

That is wonderful to hear. Thanks for taking the time to share this. Cheers, Sarah

I only recently found this and It’s great to be able to chat to others that are going through the same things

It has been really good and helpful and the people on here has helped me out as I didn't know on a lot of things and what websites to go on and I would like to say a big thank you for everything you have done
