    More about how we use your stories to help raise awareness of caring.

    MOIRA’s Carer Connect team will review all of the stories and content shared and be in touch with you to discuss sharing it with our broader carer community.

    If we decide to share your story we will always get in touch to let you know and make sure you are still happy for it to be used. We might also want to include your story in our email newsletter, if we do we will get in touch with you to discuss this.

    We’ll talk to you about what the opportunity involves and answer any questions you may have before you decide if you want to take part.

    There are lots of different ways in which we might use your story to help us raise awareness of carers and their incredible role of supporting a loved one.

    On our website

    We may decide to feature your caring story here on MOIRA’s website. These stories highlight some of the issues around caring and get to the heart of what it means to be a carer.

    These are often stories where people are happy to use their name and include some photos of themselves and maybe of the person they care for. Sometimes we may also include these stories in our Carer Connect email newsletter.

    On our Facebook or Instagram page

    Sometimes we read a story, or see a photo or a sentence or two which we think really sums up a particular caring experience. When we do, we may post these on our Facebook or Instagram page, often anonymously. We may also include carers stories in our private Carer Community Facebook group.

    It’s up to you if you want to include a photo or not.

    Photos can make a story more powerful as they help someone reading your story relate to your situation. The photo can be of just you, or of you and the person you care for.

    Don’t worry if you are not comfortable providing a photo. We can still use your story or even just a quote that gets to the heart of what it means to be a carer, which can be just as powerful as an image.
