Share and Learn online sessions

We're running a series of fun and relaxed online sessions where visiting speakers share tips and skills on a range of topics.

From yoga to singing, and first aid to photography, there's something for everyone. We add new sessions every week so keep an eye on this page for more!

Want to meet other carers? Join our weekly online Care for a Cuppa chats where you can grab a cuppa, take a little break and chat with fellow carers who understand what you’re going through via Zoom.

Carers in Wales can also join our Me Time sessions.


How to sign up

Our Share and Learn events are generally bookable via Zoom. Once you have registered by clicking the "Book here" option of the session you wish to attend, you will be sent a Zoom "join meeting" link. Please note you may not receive your link straight away. If you have registered during the weekend or during out of office hours, you will receive a confirmation email as soon as possible.


Session recording

To help more carers enjoy the benefits of Share and Learn, certain sessions will be recorded. Only the speaker/facilitator’s section will be publicly shared. If you do not wish to be recorded, you are welcome to turn off your camera/audio during this part of the session.
 
You can now watch previous Share and Learn sessions here.
