Carers enjoy Walk and Talk group in Devon & Hampshire

11th December, 2019

Capstone South West have been trialling a new idea which came about from The Shirin Yoko Forest Therapy day last May. November saw the first of their Walk and Talk Groups for carers (and dogs!) which took place in the New Forest. Carers expressed a wish to continue meeting on a regular basis but outside of offices and training rooms. One thing that many carers talk about is feeling isolated and how good it is to meet up with other carers who totally “get it”. Coming together in a natural environment creating an opportunity for carers to meet up with new and experienced carers, exchange ideas, views and support each other, but also to take some time for reflection and fresh air. Our first session took place in the New Forest, we walked and talked for about an hour and a half and then ended with a coffee (everyone brings flasks and biscuits.) The carers have loads of ideas for places to walk and given how large our geographical area is, Nikki is hopeful that most carers will be able to join us for at least 2 walks over the year, if not more!
