Care for a Cuppa video chats

Guidance on coronavirus and a place to share concerns and support
Dear Carers UK members

Sometimes it’s important to take a little break, make yourself a cuppa and spend some time talking to people who understand what you’re going through. But while we are self-isolating and dealing with so many other things, it can be hard to find ways to connect with others.

That’s why we’re organising a weekly online Care for a Cuppa – a chance to get together to take a break whilst sharing information over a tea or coffee (and maybe a biscuit or two).

Our next Care for a Cuppa will be on Thursday 07 May from 3-3.30pm and we hope you can join us then – through coming together, we can help make sure that we all feel less alone.

If you’re free and would Care for a Cuppa, please visit the following link to let us know:

You’ll be sent a confirmation email and will just need to click the link on Thursday to join in with us all. Places at the table are unfortunately limited, but we’ll be hosting more events every week.

With good wishes

Michael

I've never used Zoom.
Please can we have some information about how it works, how to connect to it, and what equipment we need to access it?

Hi bowlingbun, I found this Zoom Guide online which should help. It's quite detailed with pictures of the screens.
If you'd prefer, I'd be happy to walk you through it.
Hello everyone

We still have a few places available for our next 'Share and Learn' video chat which takes place tomorrow (Thursday 21 May) from 3-4pm. During Mental Health Awareness week this video chat will focus on mental health and wellbeing for carers.

The session is being facilitated by Hanlie Burger from Harrow Mind, whom some of you will remember from the very well received session she ran at our Members' Conference in October.

We've had great feedback from the carers who have attended the other video chats we have run in the past few weeks - the session on Monday was like a video version of the Forum, with more experienced carers providing some valuable practical tips for people new to caring.

If you are not able to join us tomorrow, you can find out about our other 'Care for a Cuppa' and 'Share and Learn' video chats at www.carersuk.org/cuppa

Wishing you all well

Michael
