Support In The Crawley District

A warm welcome from the Crawley Team at Carers Support West Sussex. Our friendly and dedicated team are here to provide information, guidance, and support in your caring role. We also want to find ways for you to better manage your caring role while looking after your own health and wellbeing. If you would like to talk to one of the team, contact us to book into one of our dedicated phone surgeries and chose a date and time suitable to you.

This Day Club is a unique opportunity to enjoy good food and companionship, within a fully trained host’s house. Two to five guests will be invited to the host’s house to enjoy a delicious home cooked lunch, whilst enjoying the companionship of others in a similar situation. The Club’s mission is twofold: to support those living in isolation, perhaps feeling socially excluded or experiencing a deterioration in memory and to also provide a day of valuable respite to those carers who look after their loved one (our guest) on a day to day basis.

The Tapestry Day Club aims to create an environment where guests feel supported and cared for, help reduce anxiety, have regular face-to-face contact with others which enables strong relationships to be built, re-gain confidence, enjoy being part of a small group and ultimately remain a valued member of their community.

For more information, please contact us by phone 01403 791020 or email support@tapestrydayclub.co.uk
