    New Mindfulness Courses Programmed

    Thursday, November 27th, 2014

    We have just programmed in our initial 8 week Mindfulness courses for next year, more courses will be programmed if and when funding is confirmed. Please see our Mindfulness Courses pages for up-to-date information.

    The newly programmed courses will include the newly funded courses for carers of people with dementia – for these courses, if there is sufficient demand, the Angel Centre will run an activity program for people living with dementia to run concurrently with the course. Please note these will NOT be running on the dates/times advertised by the Carers’ Centre newsletter.

    Please note that all courses are subject to waiting lists, and unfortunately the general course places are all already filled from our waiting list; please e-mail us a referral form to be added to the waiting list if spaces become available, or you wish to attend a later course.
