Action for Carers Surrey
Enabling carers to have a voice and realise a life outside caring

Events at Action for Carers Surrey

We run events throughout the year to support carers and to give them a break from their caring role. There’s all sorts going on:

  • Information events – for example on carers’ rights, or help with finances
  • Support groups – opportunities for carers to connect with other people in similar situations and share experiences
  • Wellbeing and relaxation – sessions like yoga or our cinema clubs

For more information on events near you, please have a look at what's going on below or call our information line on 0303 040 1234.

Highlights for March 2019

Spring has (almost!) sprung and if the lighter, longer days are tempting you out and about then do have a look at some of the events we've got running this month...

Last month's challenging behaviour event was so successful, we've got another one coming up on the 26th, this time in Leatherhead where there will be advice and practical tips on how to manage difficult behaviour in those you look after.

Also on the 26th we'll have experts from our moving and handling team in Staines to talk about back care preventing falls. This is really useful and so important, carers can find out how small changes can make all the difference in protecting vulnerable joints from strain and injury.

For more information and to book your place, give us a call on 0303 040 1234.
