SummaryEnable the friendly existing group to run and expand with support from Spark Somerset and Somerset Carers Service.
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 the group in a way agreed by the carers, Spark and yourself.
- Enabling Carers to access group peer support
- Working with the Spark support to organise speakers, information sharing and peer support
- Undertaking a small amount of online training and face to face occasional meetings
The Wellington group meet at the Bulford Community room opposite the hospital on the first Monday of the month in the afternoon.
