CATCH UP News...Events...Information

Hello everyone! A NEW Carer's Wellbeing Support Group On Thursday 23rd of February from 2.30 until 4pm we are holding a Carers Wellbeing Support Group event. This event will be hosted by our friends at Solent Mind (111 Leigh Road, Eastleigh SO50 9DS). The idea is that we will run this event every four months with speakers from a variety of partner organisations to explore ideas, concerns, and support around wellbeing.  This initial event will be more of a coffee and a chat to talk about the kinds of things you would like to get from the event moving forward so that we can book in the best professionals to  give advice and support. We would love to see you there! No need to book just turn up on the day.

Produced by One Community, 16 Romsey Road, Eastleigh SO50 9AL. Registered Charity Number 1052978 Registered in England as company limited by guarantee number 3132524
