As a carer it’s important to take a little break and spend some time talking to people who understand what you’re going through. That’s why we’re organising a weekly online Care for a Cuppa through Zoom.

These meet ups will allow you to connect with other carers and hear from organisations from across Wales on the work they are doing.

Each session is a 2-hour window for you to drop in and chat at anytime. Get support from the Carers Wales team, talk about your day or talk about anything else you want to talk about. This is a chance to share your thoughts and feelings in a friendly, welcoming environment.

Have any ideas for what would make a fun session? Tell us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

 Upcoming Care for a Cuppa's

Tuesday 11th August - 2.30 pm: With Citizens Advice Bureau

We can all face problems that seem complicated or intimidating. At Citizens Advice we believe no one should have to face these problems without good quality, independent advice.

That’s why we’re here: to give people the knowledge and the confidence they need to find their way forward - whoever they are, and whatever their problem.

Tuesday 25th August - 2.30 pm: With Mindfulness Mike

It's easy to get caught up in a pattern of swirling thoughts—thinking about a laundry list of things that need to be done, ruminating on past events, or could-be situations of the future—and learning mindfulness can help. But what exactly is mindfulness?

It can be defined as a mental state that involves being fully focused on "the now" so you can acknowledge and accept your thoughts, feelings, and sensations without judgment. Mindfulness meditation is a mental training practice that teaches you to slow down racing thoughts, let go of negativity, and calm both your mind and body.
