Frodsham Library launches reading group for unpaid carers

16 December 2015

Frodsham library is inviting unpaid carers to join their new reading group to take some time out from their daily routine, allowing them time to reflect, socialise and relax.

Carers, and the people they are looking after, are welcome to join the library's unpaid carers' weekly reading group, which starts on Wednesday, 20 January from 10.30am to 12noon.

There are over 6,500,000 carers in the UK, providing unpaid care by looking after an ill, older or disabled family member, friend or partner.  And this number is increasing every year.

Councillor Louise Gittins, Cabinet Member for Culture, Leisure and Wellbeing, said: "I hope as many carers as possible come along and join the new group.

"Reading together provides a shared and common experience and promotes a greater sense of wellbeing and improved sense of self-worth. It also provides care and support for the carer." Carers Reading Groups are already running at the following locations:
  • Ellesmere Port Library - Tuesdays, 10.30am until 12noon
  • ​Northwich Carers Centre - Tuesdays, 1.30pm until 3pm
  • Chester Library - Wednesdays, 1.30pm until 3pm
For further information on the new Frodsham group, please phone 07807 106984 or contact Frodsham library on 01244 977345.
