Who cares for those who are caring for everyone else?
Vassall & Coldharbour Covid-19 Emergency Response Consortium (VACCRC) are running themed wellbeing sessions for VCS (voluntary & community sector) workers and volunteers who have felt the burden of the past year and a half.
The aim is to help develop peer-to-peer support groups for workers and volunteers from the voluntary and community sectors in mutual and self-care.
If you or someone you know might benefit from connecting or reconnecting with colleagues in a safe, relaxed, fun, non-work atmosphere to boost wellbeing – then check out and sign up to one of the following series of workshops that spark an interest.
These FREE weekly workshops of about six sessions are targeted specifically for people based in Brixton/Lambeth and working or volunteering in the community e.g. for a community-focused organisation, group or project. Priority will be given to those who also live in Lambeth.
