A space for connection

Although there’s a weekly plan for the sessions, we also want the group to be varied, and to be able to discuss topics that you want covered. There will be a chance to discuss shared experiences, the positive aspects and the challenges of being a carer, and tips and coping strategies. There’ll also be some sessions where guest speakers will be offering information and advice on subjects that you may find really helpful.

If you would like to participate please email to book your place. These sessions will take place via Zoom.

There will also be an opportunity for 1:1 counselling if you feel you would need extra support to be able to join the group.
