Virtual Carer Cafe
Booking Required - https://www.gatesheadcarers.com/Pages/Events/Category/carer-groups-and-…
Stick the kettle on, get comfy, and join our virtual Carer Café on Zoom. These are very informal, friendly spaces for you to relax, be yourself, and meet other carers.
The Virtual Carer Café is open every Wednesday.
All our online sessions take place via Zoom. If you've never used Zoom before, check out our basic how-to guide.
Can't face it? No worries - None of our online sessions require you to be on live video, all we ask is that you have a working microphone on your device if you wish to interact with our sessions.
At Gateshead Carers the project aims to ensure that all communities in Gateshead regardless of ethnicity, faith, culture, religion, ability or background, have access to services.
Volunteers can help to do this by facilitating one of the Virtual Carer Cafes reaching out to carers in their local area as part of a network of volunteers providing groups of carers across Gateshead with information in an accessible format and friendly environment.
The group are looking for people who:
- are familiar with WhatsApp & zoom
- have good time management
- have good communication & people skills
- are enthusiastic and motivated
The group are also keen to welcome volunteers who are fluent in one of the main community languages in Gateshead; Urdu, Czech/Slovak, Arabic, Tigrinya, Polish, Chinese (Cantonese or Mandarin) French. Other languages also considered.
