Carers’ Drop-In (postponed until further notice)

Call in for coffee and a chat at our monthly Carers’ Drop-In – open to all carers, not just those with a connection to St Catherine’s.

The session will include an Easter Card Making workshop with Helen Byfield. It will be also include the chance to enjoy a relaxing complementary therapy.

Our carers’ drop-in sessions are held on the first Tuesday of every month, from 1pm until 3pm, and sometimes include a speaker or demonstration.

There’s no need to book in advance but you can call the St Catherine’s Support Team for more information on 01772 629171.

We’d love to see you there!

Here’s what carers say about our drop-in sessions:

“For me it’s about getting out of the house and making two hours for yourself each week, because sometimes it’s hard to make that effort for yourself.”

“It’s a friendly group and there’s always something different to do, whether that’s just sitting and having a chat or having a therapy; I find it really makes a difference to me.”

“The hospice is very welcoming and warm, so I think it’s a great place to come.”

“It makes you feel valued as a carer, because you’re always putting someone else first, so the fact that you’re making time for you is important.”

“I think exchanging notes, sharing ideas and being able to share your own experiences which can benefit somebody else is very important.”

“All of our situations are different, and I think the diverse range of experiences people have within the group is really useful.” 

Please note that we are taking precautionary action to protect the safety of our communities and, in line with Government recommendations, we are cancelling all of our study sessions until further notice. Thank you for your understanding.
