Carers' Wellbeing Project
Taking a break is vital to help carers to manage the impact that caring has on their lives.
The project supports carers to access opportunities that will promote their health and wellbeing including work, training, education leisure and social activities.
This year we ran a total of 9 trips and 14 wellbeing activities for adult carers. 86% of those carers surveyed said the project made them feel less isolated and 91% reported benefitting from the emotional support received.
Partnership work included an Iris Murdoch project for carers run by Kingston University and a creative writing course for carers delivered by Kingston Adult Education.
Two of our most popular activities were a singing course and belly dance workshops
The service provides:
One to one support for carers to help identify personal aspirations to enhance their life outside caring
Information on courses
Guidance to access work and training opportunities
