'Me Time' is a chance to do something for your own enjoyment. These online sessions, funded by the Welsh Government, are a place where you can get involved in a range of activities that you may not be able to do normally and explore new opportunities. We will be doing all sorts of things ranging from group viewings of the great wonders of the world, to physical exercise to relaxation and mindfulness and so much more.

These sessions are all about you and your wellbeing.

Come along and have some fun, take a break from your daily routine and share different experiences whilst in the company of other carers.


Find out more about Me Time and what carers have said about supporting their mental health here.

Sessions are being added all the time so please check back frequently to see what else may be occurring.

We also run Care for a Cuppa sessions where you get a chance to chat with other carers. Find out more about these sessions here. 


Me Time Wellbeing Days

We are now running Me Time wellbeing days. These days are a chance for you to come along and try out some of the activities we have during our Me Time sessions. Each wellbeing day is themed around activities such as craft and mindful/relaxing activities. 

You can attend as many sessions as you would like throughout the day - whether that's one session or all of them! 

Some feedback from our most recent Me Time wellbeing day:

“Today’s session made me cry, it touched me and made me realise how I need to look after myself as a carer”

“I have felt very emotional after the session and I realise that sometimes it’s ok to be not ok”

“This has helped me be connected to other carers so I now know I am not alone”

“When I first saw these sessions, I thought I don’t have time for this, but once I made time, I realised how important they are for my wellbeing and I am now eating my words”

Our next wellbeing day is on Friday 24th September.  This day will focus on wellbeing through nature, movement and culture - with sessions from The National Museum of Wales, Small Woods & The Snowdonia Society. 

Registration for these sessions takes place via Eventbrite. To register click here.

Me Time in August


Wednesday, 4th August, 3-4pm: Cultivating connections to the natural world

Scientists tell us we all have a green gene – not literally coloured green of course but one that causes us to feel attracted to and compelled by the natural world. The aim of these sessions is to help you focus on a particular aspect; supporting your wellbeing by taking you to a different world. They are filled with fun and quirky facts and are seasonally relevant in order to help you remain connected to the world outside your door.

King’s Garden is a social enterprise that supports those who need help to access the natural world for themselves; those in care homes, hospitals, living with dementia and/other life-impacting conditions.

Aug – Batty Bingo – a unique way to take a closer look at bats. Do they really fly into your hair? Are they blind?

Come and join Isa from King’s Garden as we play a game of bingo and learn more; from the tiny pipistrelle to the enormous flying fox. Something completely different for grown-up children. You may even be able to spot some flying at night at this time of year.

This session is for 1 Hour.

Wednesday, 11th August, 2-3pm: Mindfulness

Lose yourself for an hour of mindfulness meditation 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.

This session is for 1 hour.

Petra lies around Jabal Al-Madbah in a basin surrounded by mountains that form the eastern flank of the Arabah valley that runs from the Dead Sea to the Gulf of Aqaba. It contains temples and tombs carved into pink sandstone, earning its name the Rose City.

Nomadic Arabs invested in areas around Petra making it one of the major trading routes of its time.
