We aim to provide as many opportunities as we can for Carers to take a break from caring, relax together, learn together and have fun at the same time. If you have an idea for a support group, event or activity then please let us know.
The Carers Garden provides a relaxing and enjoyable space for carers to come together, work in the fresh air and to get a few hours break from caring. The group engages in a variety of seasonal tasks.

At the film club we show a range of documentaries, news reels and history films that look at London in the 50s and 60s. We hope that these films stir up memories and get everyone talking about their experiences and own recollections. The films bring back to life many names, faces and colourful characters from the past.
