Big Lottery supports Healthy Parent Carers research

The Healthy Parent Carers programme is designed to improve parent carers’ health and wellbeing by promoting empowerment, confidence, and resilience.

Tom McCulloch, Head of Funding for the South West region at the Big Lottery Fund, said: “We’re proud to be funding this project which works closely with parent carers in Exeter. Thanks to National Lottery players, The Healthy Parent Carers programme will benefit families as part of this project, helping them to improve their health and wellbeing.”

Trial Manager Dr Gretchen Bjornstad said: “Healthy Parent Carers aims to provide support for parent carers so they can develop the skills and confidence to improve their emotional wellbeing and physical health. We’re incredibly grateful for this funding, which means we can deliver our programme to parents of disabled children in communities across the South West and find out whether it can be delivered across the country.

HPC is recruiting in locations across the South West now. To sign up or for more information visit the website.
