If you haven’t tried a workshop at the Carers Support Centre before, then perhaps some feedback from carers who have will convince you to give it a go. All carers who attended a workshop last year rated it as excellent and would recommend it to others.

“It has been a great experience and a real eye opener meeting with other carers, brilliant.”

“I feel more positive now I know that I am not alone.”

“I learned how to be assertive in a kinder and caring way.”
