This Carers Week, we have partnered with Dare 2 b Different for a Well-being Day and celebration!

Join us for a chat, some nice food, and indulge in self-care activities with fellow parents and carers of children/ young people with additional needs or disabilities in Manchester.

We’re going to have:

  • Chai Tea – Start the day right with a warm brew.
  • Mehndi – Treat yourself with beautiful body art on your arms or hands. Mehndi is a temporary tattoo made out of henna. Booking will be done on a first come, first served basis on the day.
  • Wellness Arts – Painting is said to be a great way to relieve ourselves from anxiety and worries.
  • Games – Enjoy some friendly games of dominoes or Ludo.
  • Film Screening of “Wonder” – Wonder is an award-winning coming-of-age family drama telling the story of August Pullman, a boy with a rare genetic condition who enters a mainstream primary school for the first time. He endures bullying from his peers but finds a way to overcome them with his friends and family. Get the tissues ready for this one.
  • Information Packs – Learn about different services and support groups that may benefit your family.

We will serve lunch and refreshments so please let us know of any dietary requirements when booking.

About Carers Week

the Carers Week logo


Carers Week is an annual campaign to raise awareness of caring, highlight the challenges unpaid carers face, and recognise the contribution they make to families and communities throughout the UK. It also helps people who don’t think of themselves as having caring responsibilities to identify as carers and access much-needed support.

It is celebrated on 10-16 June this year and the theme is “Putting Carers on the Map” – highlighting the invaluable contributions of carers across the UK and ensuring their voices are heard loud and clear.
