    The Proud Carers was set up in order to provide LGBTQI carers of people with dementia with an opportunity to meet with people who are going through the same challenges. They are members of the same community, possibly of the same age bracket, and people who understand each other's challenges to the full.

    They aim to provide participants of this peer support group with a safe space to explore their feelings, thoughts, and sometimes pain. This will be a non-judgemental environment, hosted by a facilitator at the Albany Trust, a charity that championed LGBT rights, freedom and mental welfare from its foundation in the late 1950s.

    This is a voluntary service, free of charge, that aims to champion all members of our community, particularly in an age when the mature tend to be forgotten.

    If you would like to join them, please contact Aviv Teller on avivtelleralbany@gmail.com or call 07950 289612 for more details.

    Their first meeting will be on Sunday, the 4 March from 1-2.30pm, looking at meeting monthly to start with.

    The address is The Albany Trust, 239A Balham High Rd, London SW17 7BE
