Carer’s Cafes

  • PENKRIDGE
The Penkridge Cafe is a monthly get together where carers can come together with the opportunity to chat with other carers, swap tips on caring, make new friends and find out about other avenues of support.
The Cafe is open to carers, however, they can bring along the person they care for as long as they can support the person’s needs.
At the Cafe, carers can enjoy a coffee, pick up information on caring, or have a free and confidential one to one appointment with a skilled CASS information worker to discuss any carer’s issues they face.
There are monthly invited speakers delivering talks and information. Recent examples have included:
Welfare benefits
Assistive Technology and
Health & Wellbeing.
What are the benefits? – You will receive a friendly welcome, opportunities to share experiences and get to know others and have time to talk and socialise.
For more information, call Jane Hinton CASS Café Co-ordinator on 07740418643 or the CASS Office on 01785 222365 or download a leaflet from our literature page for more information.
