Summary

Lead a new monthly Carers Group linked to a Memory Group and potential other activities on a Tuesday 2 hours once a month with other ongoing requirements.

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 take on the leadership of the group with support from Spark and other volunteers. Key roles include

  • Welcoming Carers as they arrive and leading an agreed format
  • Enabling Carers to access group peer support
  • Collecting contributions and paying into a bank account and managing the funds
  • Purchasing refreshments from the group funds
  • Working with the Spark support to organise speakers, information sharing and peer support
  • Undertaking online training and face to face occasional meetings
  • Working with Health Coaches and other agency leads as part of a team offer to residents.

The Keinton Mandeville Carers Support Group is hoping to run on Tuesday mornings on a monthly or fortnightly basis.
