All parents and carers in Trafford are invited to a friendly coffee morning for peer-to-peer support, signposting, to listen to guest speakers and enjoy some wellbeing sessions. The sessions come with free tea and coffee and are hosted by Sarah Bradley, the SEND Local Offer Advisor from Trafford FIS and Trafford Carers Centre.
The aim is to create a community space to share experiences of caring for their family and chat about positives and the challenges carers experience. The feedback we have had is that it’s helpful to chat with others in a similar situation and to share experiences, and this helps us and the family we care about. It’s so important that our experiences help others in a similar situation. It’s also a place where specialist support services can come and engage with the community of carers and provide specialist advice.
