Carers / KIT

There are two carers groups at Alcester Cafe:


KIT – Keeping In Touch


The Carers’ group meets on the first Friday and third Tuesday of each month and their loved ones will be looked after by volunteers in the main cafe. The group is lead by Chris Brannigan, or his representative, and allows the sharing of information and peer support.

Carers also arrange to meet for lunches and social activities outside the cafe environment.

Meetings start at 11am for approx. 1 hour.


This group is for former carers or carers whose loved one is in long term care and meets on the first and third Friday of the month.

Meetings start at 11am for approx. 1 hour. Welcome to grab a coffee in the main cafe from 10.30 before joining the KIT group in the adjoining room (The Depot).
