Come along to the new Carers Evening Get-Together

Would you like to meet up with other carers on an evening? If so, come along to the new Carers Evening Get-Together.

Sunderland Carers’ Centre will be holding a Carers Evening Get-Together at the Carers’ Centre, Thompson Park, Thompson Road, Sunderland SR5 1SF, on the 1st Thursday of each month from 6.30pm – 8pm.

The very first evening get-together will take place on Thursday 7th February.

It does not matter who you care for – all carers are welcome. This is a chance for you to have a coffee and a chat with other carers.

A member of staff will be there to organise refreshments and give any specific advice if necessary but the aim is to be relaxed and for you to take a bit of a breather.

No need to book, just turn up.

For those carers who are unable to get out on an evening we are also holding a Carers Coffee Morning at the Carers’ Centre on the 3rd Monday of each month from 10.30am – 12 noon. The next date is Monday 17th February.
