Our carer peer support groups have changed.

Previously we had the TIME OUT @ Essence group (for younger carers) running on the 2nd Wednesday of every month and the W.I.S.E. group on the last Tuesday of the month.

However, from May 2018 onwards we will be running 2 carer support groups on the 1st Thursday of every month.  One will be at 1pm til 3pm and the other at 5:30pm til 7:30pm.

Age restrictions will not be in place, hence any carer can attend either or both groups.


The next drops in are:

Thursday 7th June, 1pm til 3pm


Thursday 7th June, 5:30pm til 7:30pm


We will be providing some light refreshments and plan to have an optional activity too.  We aim to keep the groups as informal as possible as we want people to feel relaxed.


Please come along, it would be great to see you there.  As always, Support Workers will be on hand should anyone want a private chat away from the group.



If you have any questions, call the Essence Service on 0191 5221310, email essenceservice@ageuksunderland.org.uk or drop in to the Essence Centre, at the Sir Thomas Allen Centre, Mill Hill Road, Doxford Park, Sunderland, SR3 2ND.
