There are around 7 million carers in the UK; it’s estimated that 3 in every 5 people will take the role at some point in their lives.* Carer Support South Lakes (CSSL) provide essential support to over 1,300 carers within South Lakeland, including parent, young adult and young carers. They offer a range of services to people of any age who care, unpaid, for a friend or family member who cannot cope without their support due to illness, disability, mental health problems or addiction.
£50,000 of investment was required from First Ark Social Investment to scale their proven Lasting Power of Attorney Service (LPA).
“From the start it was evident that First Ark Social Investment are committed to the development of new social enterprises. We have been working with First Ark Social Investment for over twelve months now and have formed a strong and trusted relationship with the team; they have been extremely supportive, offering help and advice at all stages. First Ark Social Investment have played a vital role in helping us to develop and grow the LPA service. Without their help and support this enterprise would not have been possible.”
– Mike Seaton, CEO Carer Support South Lakes
