Last year we had great success connecting carers with others within the local Bourne area to share their experiences and offer advice.
The Balanced Lives for carers programme is being delivered in conjunction with Carers First and the National Lottery Community Fund. The popular exercise and wellbeing class is now open to all carers in the Lincolnshire area.
Life in lockdown can be especially difficult for carers, but this programme aims to support the unsung heroes of later life: those who look after friends, relatives and loved ones. This is a chance for carers to connect with like-minded people and improve their health & fitness.
“There are key benefits to individuals in our exercise programme, including better posture, easier breathing, reduced stress and improvements in digestion,” – Ray Pawlett, Project Lead
