Social and Activity Groups

Everyone benefits from meeting other people and taking part in social activities and so does Carers. Not only does shared activities and positive relationships contribute to our wellbeing but they also improve our brain health too.

We know that loneliness and social isolation can increase health risks in Carers and has been associated with health issues such as depression, sleep problems, hypertension, stress and mental health problems. 

Below are some of the groups and sessions that are ran by The Carers Centre and can provide some respite away from caring and offer opportunities to take time out for yourself.

We will be adding more to this area once we are sure we have the most up to date information about how, where and when local groups are now operating. In the meantime if you wish to find activity and social groups please contact us.
