In these extraordinary times and now more than ever, unpaid carers are providing vital care and support to vulnerable people across Wales, saying they would appreciate keeping in touch remotely, so, we have set up our Tuesday afternoon, ‘Care for a Cuppa’.
Care for a cuppa - with a talk from Motor Neurone Disease Association
We will be joined at 3.30pm by Melanie Davies from Motor Neurone Disease Association to talk about how this debilitating disease affects those you may be caring for, what help and support is out there for you and how you can access this.

What is Care for a Cuppa?

As a carer it’s important to take a little break and spend some time talking to people who understand what you’re going through. That’s why we’re organising a weekly online Care for a Cuppa through Zoom.

These meet ups will allow you to connect with other carers and hear from organisations from across Wales on the work they are doing.

Each session is a 1 ½ -hour window for you to drop in and chat at any time. Get support from the Carers Wales team, talk about your day, or talk about anything else you want to talk about. This is a chance to share your thoughts and feelings in a friendly, welcoming environment.

Based on your feedback we have now changed the sessions to a 50-minute open chat session, a 10-minute break and then a 30 – minute information session to close. This gives options to stay for 1 ½ hours / 50 minutes or 30 minutes depending on your caring responsibility.

Have any ideas for what would make a fun session?
