BANES Carers’ Centre is teaming up with BANES Parent Carers Voice to host a new Carer Cafe dedicated to parent carers!
As we move into a third lockdown, our thoughts have been with you. The pressure parent carers are facing during this time is huge, and we want to be able to help ease the load in some way for you.
The virtual cafes will run every other Wednesday evening @ 8 pm, allowing you some time to talk to others who know exactly what you are going through, the challenges you face and the chance to share ideas to help us through this third lockdown and beyond, or simply have an easy-going chat to take your mind off of everything! Plus, you can choose to join us by phone, or video!
We hope that hosting in the evening and in the middle of the week will make it more accessible for you (we know how much you’ve got going on during the day!) acting as a “pit stop” for you to take stock of the first few days and carrying on through the rest of the week.
BPCV will be on hand to collect any reoccurring views to take to professionals across BANES to improve services for parent carers and their children and to signpost to anyone they think could help if it is needed. Join us to find out more about BPCV and the support on offer for you.
You can tell us you are interested by signing up here https://www.banescarerscentre.org.uk/…/online-cafes/… but we understand that things can be hectic and it’s not always as simple as planning everything in, so you don’t need to commit to attending each cafe.
We will make sure to check in with you just before the cafe, to remind you and see if you’d still like to join.

Our first cafe begins this Wednesday 13th January 2021!
We really look forward to seeing you!
