SummaryHelp provide social and emotional support in a friendly and informal way to Carers in Castle Cary.
Detailed description

The Carers Group gives carers the opportunity to take a much needed break, socialise with other carers, and find out how to access local information, resources, and other sources of support. 


They need some friendly people to help them ensure the sessions run smoothly. Tasks will include:


  • Giving a warm welcome to the carers attending the group
  • Helping prepare and serve teas and coffees 
  • Chatting to the members of the group, filling in when the Carers Agent is busy with a one to one


This is a fun, friendly and sociable role. It's very rewarding to know you are providing much needed support to individuals who spend much of their time caring for others, who would otherwise be quite isolated. 


The Castle Cary Carers Group meets on the first Thursday of the Month from 10:30am until 12pm at the Shambles.
