During the current lockdown Carers Network is continuing to run a busy programme of free online and telephone activity groups for local unpaid carers. These include new weekly telephone groups on food discussion, creative writing and poetry appreciation. Carers who do not have access to a computer or reliable broadband – or who are just put off from joining online Zoom sessions can call in and enjoy these activities.
Other online carer groups returning this year on Zoom also include Yoga, Art Classes and Mindfulness – whilst we will also be delivering Pilates, Photography, Zumba and Group Exercise sessions. All these free groups are a great way for local unpaid carers to relax, try new activities, catch up with fellow carers and have a break from their demanding caring role.
The full calendar of activities is here: https://carers-network.org.uk/online-programme-of-events/
Carers can sign up to receive links and codes by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
