Creative Carers Retreat

Creative Carers Retreat

Creative Carers is a project run BY carers FOR carers. Their carers retreat is based in the heart of Derby city centre, where carers can join in with a range of relaxing and enjoyable activities and learn new skills which benefit them long-term. They run regular 'self-care days' where carers can chill out in a calm, welcoming environment. By the time they leave, carers have learnt new skills (e.g. new relaxation techniques) which they can continue to use in their busy, every-day life. Relevant up-to-date information and resources about the caring role are also shared through informal, group discussion.

Activities and self-care days are:

  • Free for anyone over 18 and looking after someone in the city
  • Available for those living in the county but not looking after anyone in the city via their carers personal budgets.

Creative Carers also welcome county carers as volunteers at the retreat (they will reimburse travel expenses).

To find out more about them, watch this 4 minute video or visit their website where you can sign up as a member, go on ther non-carers mailing list or book onto  activities:
