Moray Cuppa Club
ENABLE Scotland is here for all carers through our emergency and future planning resources, our Trustee service, our young carers work, our ENABLE Scotland Branches and our Parents and Carers Committee.
But when it comes to our Moray Cuppa Club, we are here for a specific group of carers: carers in their 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s of people who have a learning disability or have dementia.
Supporting carers of any age is important. However, we recognise that the caring role of these individuals is becoming more demanding at a time in their lives when they themselves are getting older and are at greater risk of becoming isolated.
Our Moray Cuppa Club brings together older carers with similar life experiences to share and support each other. People come to the club because they value support from other carers in a relaxed, informal setting where they can be themselves.
The club would not run without our Project Coordinator, Jeff Gable, who inspires carers to take up offers of support in the community and to access further advice that will help them in their role.
We have been running the Moray Cuppa Club in Elgin with funding from The Life Changes Trust (The Trust is funded by The Big Lottery Fund) since October 2015. In 2017, we were delighted to also secure funding from the R S Macdonald Charitable Trust.
