We understand that carers often need support too. ‘Time for Me’ offers free or low-cost leisure activities for people over 50 who look after a family member or friend as an unpaid carer.

We have three ‘Time for Me’ programmes running across Westminster, Kensington and Chelsea. They each run a supportive programme of activities and trips, so carers can have a break and improve their own health and well-being. It’s a great way to connect with other people in a similar situation, reducing feelings of isolation and boosting confidence.

We run a ‘Time for Me’ support and activities group at the Second Half Centre at the St Charles Centre for Health & Wellbeing, W10 on Fridays and from the New Horizons Centre in Chelsea as well as a group in Westminster.
