Keeping Carers Well Programme- Taking time for you

Watch this space for an exciting programme for carers that is due to start in September. Each of the sessions and courses will enable carers to take time away from the caring role, learn new skills and techniques to use at home to improve their own health and well-being and engage in their communities.

Courses for Carers will give carers respite away from the caring role, helping them to feel part of their local community and take time for out. The programme will include Mindfulness courses, relaxation and self-healing sessions and two eight week Flower Arranging Courses.

 “This project has been supported by the BIG fund from the Adactus Housing Group”

 

Tombola Time

The Carers Centres Tombola Stand is out again.

Why not free up that much needed space by donating your unused presents to the Carers Centres Tombola stand. All monies raised will help to fund the delivery of training and activities for carers.

Please note: unfortunately we are only able to accept unused items.
