Join us to join in and take some time out just for you…… Please contact Nadine for the details and ‘Zoom’ invite by emailing nadine@thecarerscentre.org.uk or phone 0116 2510 999.

SELF HELP GROUPS: Gill will be running the video Self Help Group every Friday morning at 11am – 12.30pm. The sessions in July will be led by the issues that carers want to discuss. As usual, the group will be facilitated by Gill but carers will take the lead on what is talked about during the group session. All discussions will be confidential and carers will be asked to agree to the group rules before being sent the Zoom invite. This is to ensure that all group work is delivered in a safe and secure way. If you would like to take part please let us know by email: gill@thecarerscentre.org.uk or phone 0116 2510 999
