Summary

Do something special at our monthly meetings at the Community Centre!

Detailed description

The Carers Group gives unpaid carers of friends and family members 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 a volunteer to support the existing leadership of the group with support from Spark and other volunteers. Key roles may include

  • Welcoming Carers as they arrive, helping new attendees feel safe.
  • Purchasing and making refreshments from the group funds.
  • Working with Spark Somerset support to organise speakers, information sharing and peer support.
  • Undertaking online training and face to face occasional meetings
  • Working with the existing group leader to share the role.
  • Helping people make friends and share experiences.
