SummaryHelp provide social and emotional support in a friendly and informal way to unpaid carers at the Balsam Centre.
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.
We need someone to take on the organisation of the group. Tasks will include:
- Giving a warm welcome to the carers attending the group
- Setting up the venue and serving teas and coffees
- Running the meeting agenda
- Chatting to the members of the group, providing peer support and comfort
- Managing a small level of funds.
- 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.
It runs 2nd Monday of the month 10am to 12noon from the Balsam Centre.
Parking and access are on one level.
