A charity at the heart of our community, supporting and inspiring people to improve their health and wellbeing.


Carers Activities

We know that you are committed to your caring role but we believe that carers also have a right to a life of their own and that you need to maintain a balance between your caring responsibilities and any leisure or social activities you would like to pursue.

At Caring for Carers we run and support a variety of monthly activities for carers who are registered with us. These are low cost or free and are very popular. Spaces will always be offered to carers who have not attended previously first.
