Would it be possible to start a forum for carers? (Carers, that is, of the unpaid kind who look after a friend or relative) I can't find one on Hub as yet, but I don't know whether there is a demand for it on this site. I only know that I am a carer and can't find any forums for this group of people.
There isn't a forum for that, but if you want to start a discussion about it you may want to start a thread under "Family and Parenting", and ask something like, "Are you a primary care-giver for a family member?" or "What's the hardest thing about being a primary-caregiver for a family member?" Of course, you can make up whatever question/comment you want about being a primary-caregiver. Whatever it is you'd like discussed, it's probably worth mentioning, "If you're a primary caregiver of a family member..." (You could start a few threads about being a primary caregiver. I imagine there would be people who would have something to say.)
Don,t know which country you live in,but a google search should give you some info.
This is one in the UK.

You may have noticed that Lisa HW used the term "caregiver," which is more common in the US. Since "carer" seems to be more usual in the UK and perhaps elsewhere, you might want to use both terms in the title of a forum thread that you start.
When I first saw this current thread title, I thought perhaps "careers" had been misspelled; then (before I checked), I thought it might have something to do with cars. LOL - I may be slow, I know. Anyway, since there are different words for this, you might try using the different words to attract a wide participation.

While I'm being a policeman, I can't help noticing that there's a lot of self-promotion that goes on in the forums. Especially the "other topics" forums, where quite often you'll find posts with not much...
