In the 2018 Carers UK State of Caring survey, 72% of carers in the UK said they had suffered ill health as a result of caring. To improve carer health in Leeds, we’re hosting this series of online wellbeing sessions.

In this session, our carers good health worker Jo Foster will talk to carers about resilience and “bouncing back”.

These 30 minute info sessions have been designed to focus on some of the common issues faced by carers. We will provide an overview of the issue along with top tips and techniques for you to try and improve your health. Other session topics include:

  • Communication skills and getting what you want
  • Getting organised
  • Solving problems 
  • Assertiveness, boundaries and saying no
  • Living with worry
This event is accessed over the internet via Zoom. To take part you will need access to the internet plus a computer, smart phone or tablet.

No experience needed. To book a place please contact Jo Foster, our carers good health worker on jo.foster@carersleeds.org.uk and Jo will send you the zoom joining link.

If you are interested in a session but there isn’t a time or date to suit you, or you don’t have access to Zoom, contact Jo who will work with you to find a way to share the information with you.

The sessions are very relaxed and you can just sit and watch. Participation is minimal and not compulsory, so you are welcome to attend and just watch and listen.

Why not devote a small part of your day to your own wellbeing, get a cuppa and join Jo.  80% of carers surveyed after the last round of sessions said they were “extremely likely” to attend another session.
