In Kind Direct – spend more on support, not supplies

In Kind Direct is a charity founded by HRH The Prince of Wales in 1997. It connects businesses and manufacturers with new products to donate, to charitable organisations that need them. These are goods that would otherwise end up in landfill. They have worked with 9,700 charitable organisations (not just registered charities) and members could each save thousands of pounds every year.

CASS Carers Café - Wombourne.

Come and join us at the CASS Carers Café. We meet in the Brook Room, Wombourne Civic Centre on the second Wednesday of every month.  We meet at 10:30 am and finish at 12:30pm.  There is no charge and refreshments are provided.

A CASS Carers Café is an opportunity for people who care for family members and friends with a long term illness or condition to meet others in a similar situation.  Caring and supporting someone can be a rewarding experience. However, without support it may at times, become isolating and exhausting.

As a partner in Together We’re Better, we are working alongside NHS organisations, local authorities, Healthwatch and voluntary and community sector groups to achieve a joint vision of ‘working with you to make Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent the healthiest places to live and work’.
