Come along to the monthly meetings for carers; enjoy a cuppa, have a friendly chat and learn more about the support group. We share information and support each other in a friendly and welcoming atmosphere .

Meetings are held on the first Friday of the month at 10.30am to 12.00pm.

Come along and talk to other carers, access support from services provided by The Disability Resource Centre or listen to visiting speakers (suggestions welcome). We ask for a contribution of £2.50 to cover refreshments.
