What carers say

What carers say

We:

  • Have ongoing conversations with each other, as carers
  • Always use those conversations to plan what we’ll do next
  • Sometimes write up the conversations for others to read.

 

Quotes from our carers

"It's such a relief to see such a diverse programme, full of activities. I work so I can't get to a lot of events during the day. I'm looking forward to getting involved."

 

"This is so exciting and what carers need."

 

"I really like the membership card and the fact that there are enhanced rewards – it encourages me to sign up."

 

"The fact that these facilities are accessible is really important."

 

"I am so glad I came. I’ve picked up important new information and am going away much happier."

 

"This has turned my mood around, I feel like the sun has come out, thank you!”

 

"I love [the Retreat] it’s so good to come somewhere that feels like home, I can come and help myself to a drink and feel like I’m among friends."
