Carers Social Events

We provide a various range of social events and activities aimed specifically for informal carers. These can provide a welcome break from their caring duties and the chance to meet others carers in a similar situation. Carers Social Events are held at H.A.D. and at a variety locations throughout the borough. Our Carers Social Events have proved very popular with carers, giving them the opportunity to get together and chat with other carers, relax in a warm and friendly atmosphere and exchange information, providing mutual practical and emotional support for each other. These include Pub lunches, Relaxation, Health and Well-being workshops, Arts and Crafts events.

We also host a variety of events for carers and their cared for.

New Carers are always welcome. If you would like more information on any of our events, please do not hesitate to Contact us on 01708 476554.

Details of upcoming events can be found in the events calendar

Befriending Scheme

H.A.D.’s Befriending Scheme can provide an informal carer with a much deserved break by matching your cared for with a trained DBS checked volunteer. At the same time this provides the cared for with a companion to have a chat with, do an activity such as play cards, scrabble etc. or go out for a coffee.  If you would like to know more about this scheme please contact Clare Kelly Contact Us on 01708 476554.
