New carers support group online

Phew – Wednesday already and I have just come up for air.... Monday I spent with all the other Maggie’s centre heads (there are quite a group of us these days as we have  a growing number of centres) always a lovely to see everyone  a very busy day as we get together to share experiences and also to plan future developments....

Talking of new things I promised to return from holiday with news of new groups for Maggie’s  online  I am delighted to let you know that  a new weekly carers group will be starting on 20th September.

The first session of this facilitated group , for  anyone who is supporting someone else with cancer, will be at the new time of 1.30 on Thursdays.   As well as open discussion sessions where you can share experiences and raise issues relating to your role as a caregiver  with other  group members, who may be in a similar situation,  there will also be some themed sessions foccusing  on providing information about areas  shown to be important to people looking after  those with cancer.

If you would like to join the group, you need to be a registered member of the online centre and you also need to sign up for the group – you can find out more about the carers group, our other online support groups, and how to sign up here.   If you have any questions about the group you are welcome to message me

 Best wishes

 Robyn
