Join us!

Following the success of our summer Wellbeing Day back in June, Signpost will be holding a Winter Wellbeing Day for Carers at The Alma Lodge Hotel on Monday 11th December 2017. Drop in any time between 10.30am and 3pm but please let us know you're planning to come by booking a place on 0161 442 0442 or emailing [email protected]

It is our hope that this Winter Wellbeing Day will deliver a bit of festive fun as well as giving all the carers in attendance a chance to think about how they can improve their ability to live happy, healthy lives alongside their caring responsibilities.

Workshops

A number of free workshops will run throughout the day:

  • Stress Management
  • What really matters at Christmas - you!
  • Yoga with Ciara
  • Carers' Carols

Local Organisations

Carers will have the opportunity to speak with a number of professionals and organisations about the challenges that can affect their caring roles and the quality of their lives.

Carers' Lounge

A team from the Arc Centre and Gallery will be on hand for carers who wish to partake in making some Christmas crafts. There will also be plenty of space and opportunities to simply sit and have a cup of tea and a chat with other carers.

This Wellbeing Day will also feature some festive entertainment, a mini Christmas market and an exhibition of art produced by carers at Signpost courses earlier in the year. Whether you stop by for an hour or stay all day, we hope there will be plenty to keep you busy and lots of opportunities to make new connections with other carers as well as catching up with some familiar faces.

See you there!
