Welcome Into Support at Essence! The WISE group gives carers the opportunity to meet others in a similar situation for a cuppa, cake and a chat.

The group has a drop in between 1pm – 3pm on the last Tuesday of every month at the Essence Service at Doxford Park.

Our next meet up is on Tuesday 27th March – we will be having some lovely Easter treats.  Please let us know if you would like to come along.



Past drop ins we had in 2018:

On Tuesday 27th February, we showed a short video about Managing Stress & Relaxation.  This gave some good tips as it is vital that carers get some much-needed relaxation and time to themselves.

On Tuesday 30th January, as this was the first of 2018 we had a very informal gathering over a light lunch and discussed our New Year resolutions!


Past drop ins we had in 2017:

On Tuesday 7th November, we had Keith from Live Life Well pop in to talk to us about Healthy Living. Keith gave us some helpful hints and tips for a healthy life style.

On Tuesday 5th December, as this was the last before Christmas, we had a very informal gathering where carers had a chat over coffee, mince pies and other Christmas treats.
