                                     SO FAR!!
        Welcome to the 6th edition of the
         ―Needs & Aspirations Project‖.

     DO YOU CARE FOR A FAMILY
        MEMBER OR FRIEND?
WOULD YOU LIKE SOME TIME TO YOURSELF
   AWAY FROM YOUR CARING ROLE?
   THERE’S LOADS OF CHOICES AND IT MAY BE A
 CHANCE FOR YOU TO TRY SOMETHING NEW. ENJOY!
The last directory proved to be really popular with
almost 500 places taken. Here are a couple of
comments about the activities:
“The course gives me a new hobby and gives me a
new lease of life and something to look forward to.”
“A chance to be me rather than a carer for a few
hours.”
If you have not been involved before, have a look at
the choices and book. We are sure that there will be
something that appeals to you.
The selection in this directory has been put together
with care and attention and by listening to carers.
If there is something missing that you would really like
to try please let us know.
If you know any other Carers who may benefit
please pass on the directory or contact us on
01933 396382 to request further copies.

  WE HOPE YOU ENJOY YOUR OPTIONS
