Carers' Social Events

We support carers mainly by helping them to address the problems they face in caring for their relative or child with a learning disability. Help from our Family Support Service with issues such as benefit claims, care assessments and reviews or anything else that is making life stressful for both the carer and the cared for is always available by contacting the office on 0118 9662518, Monday to Friday between 9.30am and 1.30pm.

We also provide a regular break from caring through our clubs for children, adults and siblings, this is an enjoyable experience for the club user themselves. We offer some specific events just for carers, which can be seen on this page, as well as events to share with the person cared for.   

You can access this service on the phone, at our drop-in centre in Alexandra Road, Reading and in the home, if carers prefer, or by emailing office@readingmencap.org.uk or use the 'Contact Us' page on this web site.
