Two Sides Of The Story

In June, British Gas published a video on its Youtube channel titled Two Sides Of The Story | That You Care | Carers UK and British Gas and the video has since attracted thousands of views.

6.5 million carers in the UK are unpaid, caring for family members or friends who are elderly, disabled, or seriously ill. To show solidarity and raise awareness, British Gas and Carers UK came together to create the #sharethatyoucare campaign. This campaign was designed to encourage carers to talk about the challenges of their roles and how they’re feeling, with the aim to find support.

The most recent video in the campaign, Two Sides Of The Story, was aired in cinemas across the UK during Carers’ Week (10th - 16th June). Featuring interviews with four carers and their closest friends, this video effectively makes the stance that carers often experience stress, loneliness, and mental health difficulties - even if those issues are unseen and unspoken.

At n-compass, we know that being a carer comes with challenges, difficulties, and stress which can greatly impact their lives. That’s why we’ve put together a range of services to help carers. To find out more about n-compass can help you if you’re a carer, click here.
