This is a monthly group for Male Carers – the meeting takes place in Crewe.

All male carers are welcome to attend.  The group take part in activities, trips, and sometimes a speaker will visit the group – it is a perfect opportunity to take a break from your caring role and gain support from other male carers.  The group leader also offers information, advice and support and can help identify other services which may be of assistance to you.

The meeting is held on the first Thursday or each month between 4.00pm-6.00pm at Unit 1, Brierley Business Centre, Mirion Street, Crewe, CW1 2AZ
