Carer’s Lunch Club

Carer's Lunch Club

We continue to welcome family carers to our popular monthly Carer’s Network Lunch Club held at the Southampton Mencap Activities Centre in Portswood. These lunches aim to provide opportunities for socialisation and relaxation and meeting others in similar circumstances on a regular basis, as well as providing relevant information from a range of guest speakers. Meetings are between 12 p.m. and 2 p.m. unless otherwise stated, and dates will always be posted on the website in advance.

Each meeting offers Family Carers:

  • A chance to meet other family carers
  • The opportunity to join in discussions with a range of speakers, on issues concerning them and their caring responsibilities
  • Practical and emotional support

How to get in touch

For carers with difficulties in getting to the Mencap Centre

We may be able to organise a taxi for carers on request who do not have the use of a car and would find it difficult to travel on public transport, or where specific circumstances can be considered on a discretionary basis.
