The Carers Café provides a relaxed and welcoming environment for unpaid carers to take a break and share experiences of caring for someone living with dementia. 

Carers will also have the opportunity to contribute to the creation of a new play all about dementia, aimed at educating young people and their families about the disease, and helping to reduce fear and stigma.

The Café on 17th December will include a Dementia Friends session, an initiative led by the Alzheimer's Society to enable people to learn more about dementia. 

A hot drink and sweet treat will be provided!
