Support your health and wellbeing today

It can be difficult to look after our own health and wellbeing when we care for someone else, and it has been even more challenging during the pandemic. We offer a range of free activities and social get-togethers online, over the phone and face to face, there is something for everyone!

Once you have chosen all the activities that you are interested in, click register and fill in your details. If you are new to The Carers' Centre, you will need to join us to access our free services. Simply fill out this short form to join.

To ensure as many people as possible can access our activities, you may not be able to go to every activity that you request. Once we receive your request, we will do our best to get back to you within 2 weeks to let you know which activities we are able to offer you, but at peak times this may take up to 4 weeks. This enables us to implement our fair use policy and ensure those who need to take a break are able to.
