Carers Support GroupCarers Support Group

Now commenced - 1st & 3rd Wednesday of each month

Carers need support too. This group aims to discuss the issues facing carers and how they can be supported in their important role in the cancer journey.
Support Groups are a place where:
• We respect others’ feelings and opinions
• We can all be heard – one at a time – we listen intently to each other, not just waiting to have our say
• We can share our vulnerability in safety and be understood – sharing can bring healing – sometimes we just need to be heard and can work out our own solution
• We feel safe and everything which happens in the group stays within the group
• We can express ourselves honestly without fear of judgement
• We can cry and know that it is understood and we are not judged for it
• We can find a positive environment, sharing information, research and ideas
• We can form social bonds – as in outings, exercise, nutrition
• We can share laughter
