Upcoming events for Carers in April 2024


Respite/Breaks/Time for you

Even the most dedicated carers sometimes long for some time for
themselves, when they can stop, relax and think about them for a change,
even if only for a little while.

For this reason, Wigan and Leigh Carers Centre offer a range of activities and events which can help carers get a break from their caring role.

Most activities are just for carers, so that you get a real break from caring, but occasionally we organise events and activities which are open to carers and the person they care for.

For a list of current events, please see our list of events and activities:
