1st December 2021, 1:00pm to 2:00pm
- Being a carer
This session is part of a series of small, peer-led support groups launched by Cityparents with the aim to enable members to share experiences, encouragement and advice on a particular topic. Informal, friendly and confidential, these events will connect City professionals who may be facing similar personal situations, experiences or challenges so they can support each other. Each group will be lightly facilitated by a Cityparents team member. There will be no ‘expert content’ and the focus of the group will be the sharing of personal experiences and provision of peer to peer support. Please read our Support Group FAQ before booking.
These groups will:
- Provide a safe confidential space to share experiences and support others in similar sometimes sensitive situations, under Chatham House Rule.
- Follow good group discussion etiquette – listening well; being supportive and empathetic; positive and productive; and non-judgemental.
