The feedback from a recent Workshop was extremely positive.  It certainly served to reinforce the need for these:-

"It feels like we have somewhere to go now" - Family carer for her husband.

"On a personal note and having been a carer for over 10 years I can completely relate to this comment and this shows that community training is a massive achievement.  Often, that is all people need to some degree - others who relate and can share their difficulties" – Lee Pearse - ARUK National Dementia Champion and was carer for his mother.

Our workshops are completely free, however, places are limited so we recommend that you either call on 01142 469 666 or email [email protected] to book your place.
