As part of our feeling good, caring well initiative we are running a series of gentle strolls through our beautiful Essex countryside with the company of a mindfulness practitioner, for some guidance on getting the most of being in the great outdoors. All venues will have ‘comfort’ facilities and free refreshments will be provided. We look forward to spending some peaceful, quality time with Carers.
