Manchester Carers Centre’s peer support provision is one of our longest running services. Our Carers Coffee Mornings provide relevant information, services, and advice to Carers. Our sessions cover a wide range of themes including benefits advice, Mindfulness techniques, Estate Planning, Sleep therapy, and many more! We pride ourselves on being carer-led and always welcome new theme suggestions from Carers.
Coffee mornings also provide a fantastic opportunity for unpaid Carers to socialise with their peers in a safe and friendly environment. They offer a much needed opportunity for regular respite away from their caring role. Manchester Carers Centre staff are always on hand at the sessions to facilitate and provide support in a group setting.
Currently, Manchester Carers Centre runs two regular Carers Coffee mornings:
