A weekly craft session held at the Factory and organised by Prama Life is aiming to combat isolation for both carers and their relatives.
It aims to be a place for carers to connect with people that might be in a similar situation and give them a chance to relax and have fun together.
Carers of any kind are able to pop in for a cup of tea and cake, and talk with other people in a similar situation. Some even take this opportunity to do urgent paperwork that they otherwise wouldn’t have been able to, or even relax themselves while their relatives are crafting. It costs £2 per session.
PramaLife’s Tessa Masterman, who runs the Care for Craft group said: “It’s so important for people to get out and escape their four walls”.
