As we continue on in these strange times it has been 5 months since Manchester Carers Network have met in person. In that time the Team at Manchester Carers Forum have maintained the Carers Support Service which involves a monthly call, text or email to wave hello and check in to see how people are doing, signposting to information as and when appropriate.
They have piloted Zoom meetings as a way of trying to get people together, and this month they are piloting walks for the groups until they can physically get back into buildings again.
This new project is provided with the support of Ramblers and Stepping Out. This has involved some trial walks in the areas that are local to the areas where our support groups are run. This has been successful and hopefully walks will continue through September.
