About the Project
Many of our carers live in remote areas in Halton and find it hard to travel to our Centre to access therapy and podiatry treatments. The new bridge toll has further affected travel. These carers are physically and socially isolated and wellbeing is poor. The project will enable carers to come together at community venues in remote areas for a holistic therapy/podiatry treatment and a cuppa.
