Lead or support a monthly meeting for those who care for their family or friends in Bridgwater. Volunteers for activity group for those cared at the same time.

Detailed description


Carers Groups give unpaid carers of friends and family the opportunity to take a much needed break, socialise with other carers, share experiences, laugh, cry and find out how to access local information, resources, and other sources of support. 

We need volunteers to lead and support our Bridgwater Carers Group at a date and time to be agreed, and volunteers to support a gentle activity group for the people they care for that happens at the same time.

Key roles are negotiable but may include

  • Welcoming Carers as they arrive, helping new attendees feel safe and valued.
  • Working with Somerset Carers Service to organise speakers, information sharing and peer support.
  • Working with a range of volunteers to deliver an agenda agreed by the attendees, yourself and Somerset Carers Service.
  • Encourage empathy and mutual support, developing a nurturing confidential environment
  • Helping people make friends and share experiences.
  • Awareness of caring for friends and family and the support available.
  • Volunteers also needed to support an activity group for the people that are cared for running at the same time as the Carers group.
  • Undertaking online training and face to face occasional meetings.
