Female Carers Peer Group Volunteer Facilitator

  • VO73172


Description

The monthly female peer group is for unpaid carers who look after a relative or friend who has an illness, disability, addiction or are frail or elderly. The group allows carers to meet others in a similar situation, time out from their caring role and access support and information. The facilitator would welcome carers, encourage discussion and liaise with a member of staff to organise relevant speakers if and when requested by carers
