Address:

St John’s Ambulance Hall
Abbey Street
Market Harborough

About

Voluntary Action South Leicestershire, the voluntary organisation that runs the Support for Carers project, has been offering free monthly sessions for carers in the Harborough District for almost three years now, providing free complementary therapy treatments such as Reflexology, massage and Reiki. Sometimes, there are spare appointments at these sessions, so if you’re a carer and you’d like to find out more please feel free to ring Diane at Support for Carers. Please note that booking is essential and whilst the treatments are free, voluntary donations are appreciated.The sessions are funded by a local charitable trust, rather than via the Support for Carers project, and one of the conditions of this funding is that the sessions are for carers in the Harborough District. If you know of similar sessions running near you or you’d like our support to set up a similar activity where you live, please let us know and we’ll do our best to help.
