It's easy to feel isolated when you're caring. Held on Zoom, our online Care for a Cuppa chats offer a space to meet other carers, share experiences and find mutual support. We hold weekly sessions, mostly on Monday afternoons, and a monthly evening session if you can't attend during the daytime. You can find all our upcoming session dates and times below.

We also run sessions for carers in Northern Ireland and Scotland.

Thank you so much for your support. I just love these sessions. It make me feel part of civilization - otherwise I would be on my own."
