Limited places are available to most activities and events but we do try and share these out fairly. To enquire about any of them, please get in touch.

Nb. If you put your name down for something and we don’t let you know you’ve been successful, please assume you haven’t got a place. Transport is only provided where stated.

ALL these activities are paid for to show our appreciation of carers and the hard work you do. We do always try to ensure that everyone showing an interest gets a chance to attend at least one event or activity.

While we know that things happen that sometimes mean you are unable to come on the day, where possible, please do let us know as soon as you know you cannot come as we can then offer precious places to other carers.

More to be added throughout the year, please check back here for updates.

Send us your views

At our carer support groups, we have been asking those of you that attend what kinds of things you would like to see more of. Pamper sessions, theatre trips, wine tasting, meals and rugby tickets have all come up, so we are doing our best for the rest of the year to accommodate these requests.

We’ve also had some other really good ideas about more activities on weekends and evenings for  those of you that work or are in school or college, which we have definitely taken. Email your suggestions to carers@caerphilly.gov.uk
