Carers4Carers Monthly Meetings

Carers4Carers holds a meeting on the fourth Friday (which isn't always the last!) of the month between 10.30 and 12 noon.

We meet at Kineton Village Hall, Mill Street, Kineton, Warwickshire. CV35 0LB

We always start with coffee or tea and an opportunity to chat - a very important activity for those especially who experience isolation because of their caring role. 

Speakers are invited based on requests or recommendations from members of the group. Topics are chosen that will provide important information, develop carer skills or often advice on day to day issues. Some of the speakers and subjects we have had in the past include:

  • Age UK
  • Act on Energy
  • The Fire Brigade - home safety
  • Jeremy Wright MP
  • Alzheimers Society
  • Warwickshire Reminscence Action Project
  • Samaritans
  • Legal Issues
  • Shakespeare Hospice

 

We also schedule workshops and demonstrations that aim to encourage Carers to relax and escape from their responsibilities for an hour and focus on their own wellbeing.

  • In 2022 our carers worked with ceramic artist to work on our tenth anniversary celebratory creative piece.

  • Wet felting

  • Music Therapy

 

Our programme for the next few months can be found here.

 

Some time ago members decided that they would like the occasional meeting when they had more opportunity to talk themselves. Approximately one in three meetings are therefore without a speaker. We talk, discuss, take part in some lighthearted activities and we enjoy some lovely therapeutic treatments offered by Anita from Tranquil Beauty in Wellesbourne.
