Testimonials

 

“The staff at the Carers Centre are like my second family. Just brilliant. ”

 

Carers comment

 

“Gave me a great deal of insight into my own feelings of anger and frustration and how to cope with them"

 

'Time for Me' session

“This was a time for me to relax and be myself. I felt 'at home' in the group. The outdoor activities/walks were the best time for sharing problems & finding common emotions and needs. This time out really helped me. Thank you so very much.”
