At CSWS we truly understand the importance of staying connected. We are developing ways to safely cut through the current restrictions with new ways to encourage connection, such as our online support groups. We really are about providing that connection to help those who need it. We want to make it abundantly clear that we are here for carers and asking them to contact CSWS and join one of our many carer groups. Be visible as a carer, don’t suffer in silence.
If connecting to others via Zoom is something you haven't done before and would like some guidance and support to do so, we can help you with this, just contact us on 0300 028 8888. You can also our technology guides for some helpful hints and tips.
This group is hosted by Carer Wellbeing Workers from our Community Team. Our team of Community Wellbeing Workers support carers of someone living with a long-term condition not covered by one of our specialist teams. Quite often the people we support are in a co-caring situation and/or coping with multiple diagnoses. We host two morning groups a month, and have recently started a monthly afternoon group too. When booking your place, please scroll down the group listings to see all available ‘Open to all’ groups.
