Carers Support Group is open to anyone who provides care support to family members, friends or neighbours.
It normally holds a coffee morning (tea too!) every 2nd and 4th Wednesday between 9.30am and 11.30am at the Lord Combermere, The Square, Audlem.
The Carers Support Group coffee mornings are running under current Covid restrictions but not as open ‘drop-in any time’ events.
Carers on our register are invited by rota, with the aim of enabling all carers to attend a ‘face-to-face’ meeting every two weeks or so to enjoy coffee, chat, advice and friendly confidential support.
WHEN THINGS RETURN TO NORMAL……
We arrange Carers’ Breaks to give carers opportunities to enjoy themselves away from the responsibilities and worries of caring. Breaks may include meals out, afternoon teas, visits to local health spas, outings to places of interest, and craft activities.
In the summer months we run a weekly bowling session for Carers at the Audlem Bowling Club. Carers (and the person they care for) can also come to the Friday Fun Games.
For more information or advice please contact Lynn Morear, ADCA’s Assistant Coordinator, on 07376 070586 or email as below:
The Crewe & District branch of Parkinson’s UK provides support and social activities for people with Parkinson’s, their carers, family members and friends. It also aims to raise awareness locally to develop a better understanding of Parkinson’s and how it affects people’s lives.

Cheshire East Carers’ Hub provides a single point of access for all Carers including both young and adult Carers. The Hub exists to ensure that Carers of all ages have access to information, advice and a wide range of support services. These support services are designed to help Carers continue in their caring role for as long as they choose and to reduce the impact the caring role can have on a Carers own health and wellbeing.
Please see quotes from those who have used the Carers Hub and the help it has given them.
Support can include:
Anyone who thinks they are a carer can register with the Carers Hub by calling 0300 303 0208, emailing email@example.com or by visiting cheshireeastcarershub.co.uk.
We can support young and adult Carers who either live in Cheshire East, care for a Cheshire East resident or are registered with a GP in East or South Cheshire. Our Young Carers Practitioners are Cara and Cathryn.
Coffee and Chats : Hopefully these will resume soon when Covid-19 restrictions allow.
Meet and chat with other Carers, speak to a Carers Support Worker and take a well-earned break from your caring role whilst enjoying a coffee. If you have never been to a Coffee and Chat before don’t worry! Everyone has been a “first timer”. A friendly Carers Support Worker will be there to greet you and offer you a warm introduction.
We provide information, advice and support to unpaid carers.
A carer is someone of any age who provides unpaid support to family or friends who could not manage without this help. This could be caring for a relative, partner or friend who is ill, frail, disabled or has mental health or substance misuse problems.
may even be juggling paid work with their unpaid caring responsibilities at home. The term carer should not be confused with a care worker, or care assistant, who receives payment for looking after someone.
Carers have different needs and Cheshire & Warrington Carers Trust can assist you in information regarding health issues, entitlements, mobility, grants for holidays, equipment and support. We also offer a wide range of activities, training and events for Carers throughout the year across Cheshire.
