Carers Support Groups

Over 100 carers benefit from the self-help carer groups we support which meet in local communities across the county each month. 

Although WAC offers structured support, the Carer Groups are commonly run by our Volunteer Facilitators.

Each group is different some might focus on arranging activities, speakers or they might just meet for coffee and a chat. 

However the group runs we find their friendly and relaxed approach is invaluable as it allows carers to take time out for themselves, share information and support each other.

If you would like to come along and join a carers group near you please contact Maureen Oliver at [email protected].
