We have a rolling programme of tailor-made courses, run in partnership with the NHS as part of their well-being services. Each course runs for 5 sessions (2 hours a week) in a small group of up to 12 carers. They are designed to inform you about all the help and resources available, give you the opportunity to share experiences, learn coping strategies and look after your own wellbeing.

Our workshops are one-off sessions usually lasting 2 hours.
