Pop in for as long as you like, especially helpful if you have your children or young people around.

Please take a moment to read the carer agreement below. This is to support you and others during the Drop In to have an enjoyable and safe time. By booking to attend you are agreeing to the points below.

• We will check with you that you are a carer before the group begins.

• I will not send the Zoom link invitation, or share the meeting ID and Passcode with anyone else.

• I will treat everything I hear and see with confidence

• I am happy for my name and image to appear on screen – this is so everyone can participate in the group discussions

• I understand that others may be able to see and hear my space at home and that it is my responsibility to ensure this is an appropriate environment

• I understand the session will not be recorded, either by Zoom, CSWS or by anyone participating. I will not share or publish it in anyway, eg social media

• I will not take any ‘screen shots’ of the session – recognising others in the group may not wish their identity to be shared

• I am responsible for providing the wifi/phone/laptop etc I need to access Zoom

• I’m aware I can withdraw from the group at any time if I chose not to participate

• If I wish to prevent my email address from showing on the screen I will chose to rename it when joining the meeting

• When I join the meeting I will be in a “waiting room”, this is normal, we will be able to see you are there. Please wait, while we admit you, it might take a bit of time as we admit only informal carers who have booked.
