Personalised check-in calls with carers and online carer activity groups
By Mark Bradford - Project Leader
Thank you for generously supporting our project as we offer personalised check-in calls to ask carers how they are getting on in these challenging and difficult times, and run a varied programme of online groups and activities!
So far we have been able to call over 650 vulnerable unpaid carers.
In these calls we have been able to ask the carers if they or their loved ones have everything they need at the present time and if there is any support we can provide to them.
We have also been able to let them know about all the online support and activity groups we are currently running.
These include catch-ups with the CEO, arts, music and poetry appreciation sessions, book and film clubs, genealogy, quilting, mindfulness, yoga and carer-training to name but a few. The full programme can be seen on our website here.
The pandemic has done a lot to hide carers – confining them to their homes
With your support we are able to help carers access vital support while also giving them the opportunity to break the routine and allowing them to enjoy recreational activities!
