The Taking the Pressure out of caring workshops are a joint initiative between Shropshire and Telford and Wrekin council, working co-productively with informal carers, with the aim of helping carers who are feeling overwhelmed and are trying to juggle caring with other commitments.
The 9 sessions cover all of Shropshire, with one being on a Saturday so that working informal carers have the opportunity to attend. People can attend any event – so if they live in the Shropshire council area but want to attend an event in the Telford area that is no problem at all. If anyone would like to attend but has difficulty with transport please contact Margarete Davies by calling 01743 255776 to discuss the help needed.
The events will start with a buffet lunch and then time to look at what a carer does, the stress they are under daily and ways to manage the stress. The events will be facilitated by an informal carer and it is hoped that they will be a safe environment for carers to discuss anything that concerns them. All events will start at 12-30 with the lunch and end at 3-30pm.
