Summary

Be part of the team of health professionals and volunteers making exciting things happen every first Wednesday of the month.

Detailed description

The monthly Carers Group gives unpaid carers of friends and family members, the opportunity to take a much needed break, socialise with other carers, and find out how to access local information, resources, and other sources of support. In Keinton Mandeville, this group teams up with Milbrook Surgery to provide a Memory Cafe and Social Prescribing/ Health Coach support all at the same time! This is open to all residents and volunteers in Keinton and the surrounding locality including Somerton.


We need someone to support the group leader.

Tasks will include:


  • Giving a warm welcome to the carers attending the group
  • Setting up the venue and serving teas and coffees
  • Chatting to the members of the group, providing peer support and comfort
  • Undertake a small level of training


This is a fun, friendly and sociable role. It's very rewarding to know you are providing much needed support to individuals who spend much of their time caring for others, who would otherwise be quite isolated. 

Full accessibility, free parking outside.
