Sit for a Moment

We launched a series of 3 x 8 week 1.5 hour Mindfulness sessions for up to 10 carers, helping them to live in the moment and reduce stress.

We also introduced a social afternoon for Carers and they care for to drop in for ‘Tea and a Blether’. This has been a successful activity as people have used the centre to meet up with others for peer support and company.

To support the continuation of a fully managed, all-inclusive annual multi-sport, pan-disability residential sports camp held at Badaguish Activity Centre. The camps are three days long, very positive and intensive for participants and a great chance for carer respite sustained through increased activity.
