“Move with Us” is an initiative from Cheshire Dance, Bright Memories and Cheshire & Warrington Carers Trust. This dedicated session gives carers the time and space to move together for a healthier body and mind.  These sessions are open to all carers and those they care for in the Cheshire and Warrington area, and are dementia and disability friendly.

“Having the sessions regularly has had a wonderful impact on the health and well-being of our carers. It increases their mobility in this time of increased stillness due to the pandemic and when many people are fearful to leave their homes even for daily exercise. It brings them together for something to look forward to each week.
Also the sessions have built my confidence as a creative practitioner interested in sensory work, for times when I may be called upon to work with movement in my role working with people living with dementia and to offer touch as a sensory alternative to dance movement for people who are non verbal or not mobile, in a respectful and appropriate manner.”
