Still Caring

A social group for people who are or have been until recently, caring for someone else.

Who is it for:

We can:

  • offer a friendly face and warm conversation over a cuppa
  • introduce you to others who understand your situation
    inform you of other activities happening locally
  • share stories without judgement
  • help build confidence with returning to a social situation.
