Care for a cuppa - online chats

Make yourself a cuppa and join us for an online chat

Carer and Care for a Cuppa attendee Norman shares what these sessions mean to him

As a carer it’s important to take a little break and spend some time talking to people who understand what you’re going through. That’s why we’re organising a weekly online Care for a Cuppa through Zoom.

"Thank you so much for your support. I just love these sessions. It make me feel part of civilization - otherwise I would be on my own."

How to sign up

If you would like to join, please register by clicking the "Book here" option of the session you wish to attend, and you’ll be sent a confirmation email with details on how to join the chat and a Zoom "join meeting" link. The confirmation email is sent one week prior to each session, and you will also receive an email reminder in the morning of the session. Please also check your spam folder. If you have registered during the weekend or during out of office hours, you will receive a confirmation email as soon as possible. You will need to register for each Care for a Cuppa individually.

Before joining Care for a Cuppa, read our guidelines for our online chats here.

Carers Scotland also run regular Care for a Cuppas for carers in Scotland.
