Our Services

Approach Café (Carers Groups)

  • Do you care for an older person with dementia or a mental health issue?

  • Would you like to meet other carers in a similar situation?

The Approach carers Cafés are monthly support groups for anyone who cares for an older person with a mental health issue. The Cafés operate throughout Stoke-on-Trent and North Staffordshire and provide a informal and enjoyable environment where carers can meet with each other, and with professionals who can support them.


New members are always welcome at the Cafés. Café refreshments are free, though we are always grateful for any donations to help cover costs. Help can also be given with transport if people have difficulty attending.


See the 'Upcoming Events' section of the website or click the 'what's on and where' icon on the home screen for Café venues and dates. If you would like more information on your nearest venue, please contact Approach and ask to speak to the Café co-ordinator.
