Carers Programme

Activities

We offer a range of courses, access to information and literature on a range of issues relevant to carers. We also organise additional classes such as dance, art, music/singing as well as interesting talks by organisations and individuals who support carers.

Moreover, we offer 1-2-1 support via direct payments/Self Directed support via a dedicated member of staff who is available by appointment.

Finally, carers and cared for can enjoy our excursions as part of a small group on excursions to local venues and places of interest. A member of staff will be present to offer any assistance needed. Transport and entry fees are provided free of charge.
