Free Relaxation Classes for Carers


"Great compassion penetrates into the marrow of the bone." -- Nagarjuna



Are you a carer in the community of a child or young adult and feel overburdened and overwhelmed?


Two charities, in association with Fusion, are offering three free relaxation classes for carers of children and young adults. These will happen at Brockwell Lido on Monday May 9th, Monday May 23rd, and Monday June 6th. Every class is on from 11am - 12:30pm. The sessions are designed as respite for people who care for children or young adults who are frail or ill, or have a physical, mental health or learning disability, and do so without receiving financial compensation. The sessions will be about helping people learn some wonderful survival skills.
