Family Carers Ireland - Offering Family Carers Free Counselling Sessions

As a carer, there are times when mental health and emotional well-being may be challenged due to a combination of the demands of a caring role, and the additional worries of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Family Carers Ireland offer help to family carers, as they believe no one should have to care alone. They have developed a free, short-term online and phone counselling service for family carers, and will connect carers with a qualified counsellor from a panel of approved professionals.


The service can be accessed through the website or through the National Freephone Careline on 1800 24 07 24
