Culture club for carers

Culture Club is a membership scheme for people over 55 living in Kirklees providing high quality cultural experiences in a supportive and social environment.  Culture Club is unapologetically positive, engaging people through their passions and giving control and choice to members.

To provide the services of Culture Club to carers accessing Admiral Nurse support, we’re introducing this particular project that will offer these carers the opportunity to take part in bespoke activities, designed just for carers. We’ll also work with carers to identify and help provide the support they’d need to enable participation.

Working closely with the Trust’s Admiral Nurse team, carers will be introduced to this project and offered the chance to join us in a number of activities ranging from “coffee and..” events and art workshops to theatre and gallery visits

Through this project we aim to:

  • Enable carers accessing Admiral Nurse support to participate in Culture Club
  • Give carers some respite from their caring duties
  • Improve the wellbeing, confidence and resilience of carers
  • Broaden the horizons of carers and increase their sense of social connectedness
  • Promote connectivity between carers; reducing isolation and loneliness and helping them come to terms with their role as carers
  • Start a dialogue with carers about what the barriers to them accessing cultural or social activities are and then use this dialogue to shape a future Culture Club or other creative service offers for carers
  • Create a constructive partnership working relationship with Admiral Nurses

Culture Club aims to broaden people’s horizons, encouraging them to try new things, make connections with other people, and support them to live life to the full.  This approach aligns itself with the Trust’s overarching mission of “enabling people to reach their potential and live well in their community”.
