Carers Resource, a charity which supports carers in Keighley, has set up an online forum.

People caring for elderly or disabled relatives can link up with others in the community as well as the charity’s own team of volunteers.

The hope is that the forum will help combat the loneliness and isolation often felt by people who care for vulnerable people.

Carers can share their experiences and give advice or encouragement.

Carers' Resource founding director Anne Smyth said the new online community would offer a new dimension to the charity’s range of support and specialist advice.
