Family and Friends Drop In (For carers)
Our ‘Family & Friends Drop Ins’ are for all who give regular care and support to another person where that person could not live their everyday life safely, decently or even enjoyably without it. We offer space in which to relax, unwind and recharge among other Carers and a team of helpers who really understand.
We mostly meet on the second Friday afternoon of each month but twice a year we meet on a Saturday afternoon. On the Fridays we begin with a time of devotions which are always based on a caring theme. Then there is plenty of time to chat with other Carers and members of the team over a choice of homemade cake and as much tea or coffee as you want. In June & December we gather on a Saturday afternoon to enjoy a very relaxed full afternoon tea.
Everything we organise is on a ‘come and go as you please’ basis because we understand that it is often necessary to be very flexible about such things, and we encourage all Carers to come and go as you please, and also pick and choose the parts of the afternoons which you wish to attend because everything is entirely optional.
It is not necessary to be a ‘registered Carer’ to join us nor is it necessary to be a regular church attender. Very simply, if you are a Carer, then you are extremely welcome. We would be delighted to see you.
Meeting dates are in the church calendar and the Carers team can be contacted via reception should you wish to find out more.
