Project description:

In partnership with Aberdeen City Council, we plan to roll out sessions which we anticipate will: Run weekly in 4 community locations across Aberdeen City for 12 months; Host up to 10 carers per session; Respond to the needs of carers, based on their feedback; Improve wellbeing and reduce feelings of isolation for carers; Enable carers to plan their time in advance by knowing where and when sessions are available, considering if a monthly newsletter will be useful to keep carers informed; Empower carers to grow in confidence, supporting them to connect with wider groups in their communities; Offer carers and cared-for opportunities to socialise with peers.
