Carers Time to Talk: Caritas House, Orpington

Fulfilling a caring role can be both rewarding and challenging, and not always in equal measure. Come along and meet other carers, speak openly about your experiences of caring for someone with a life-limiting illness with others who can empathise as a result of their own experiences of caring.

“Just thought I would let you know how much I appreciate and benefit from the chat sessions.  Thank you for providing we carers with the opportunity to talk freely about anything and everything.  It’s always helpful sharing caring anxieties and concerns with others who know exactly what I am going through.  I like to think my experience can be helpful to others too. And, like today, it’s so refreshing being able to laugh and chat about things other than caring.  I get a real boost! “

This group will take place fortnightly. May and June dates are below:

14th & 28th May

11th & 25th June


If you want to hear about other ways we can support you, call 07720 669151 or email carers@stchristophers.org.uk

Carers Time to Talk: Online

Fulfilling a caring role can be both rewarding and challenging, and not always in equal measure. This is a space to speak openly about your experiences of caring for someone with a life-limiting illness with others who can empathise as a result of their own experiences of caring.

Join this supportive Carers chat via Zoom.

“It took some effort for me to join the Zoom ‘Carers Time to Talk’ because I usually avoid communications by video. However, it has been a delight to meet up with fellow carers and share tips, problems, general chat. It’s lovely building up a rapport with other people in the same boat as you and, as the weeks go by, feeling as if you’ve made new friends. It’s a group you can dip in and out of whenever you like, there are no rules – it’s becoming a big happy family to share some respite with each Thursday afternoon!”

    • Confidentiality: We will not share your information with anyone outside the organisation. Whilst we adhere to data protection regulations we cannot guarantee 100% confidentiality due to using the online platform, Zoom. We ask that you share outside the group only what you have learned about yourself. There is to be no recording of sessions.
    • Safety: Keeping yourself safe is paramount. Find a room/space where you are on your own, feel safe and cannot be overheard by anyone else.
    • Respect: It is important to respect your own experiences as well as others. There is no one or simple path to follow. It is important to respect everyone else’s experiences and feelings. We can compare but cannot judge.
    • Each person’s experiences are unique. While you may share some commonalities in your experiences, no two of you are exactly alike. Consequently, respect and accept both what you have in common with others and what is unique to each of you.
    • Advice: We are here to share personal feelings and current concerns but are not here to fix problems. You are welcome to ask questions, make suggestions.
    • Feel free to talk about your feelings. If, however, someone in the group decides to listen without sharing, please respect their preference. Avoid interrupting or speaking over someone else.
    • Feelings: Feelings are neither right nor wrong; they just are.
