Repaying the Kindness (RTK) is a project of Courthouse Community Centre (CCC) - a Registered Charity.

Repaying the Kindness sets out to nurture and support carers who live in the community and who are themselves so kind to others.

Who we are:

Repaying the Kindness is Jamyang's nonreligious sister organisation, and is registered as a charity under the name 'Courthouse Community Centre'. Based at Jamyang, our small team is supported by a dedicated troup of volunteer helpers.

We aspire to:

* offer respite in a day, free from caring responsibilities, for adult carers living locally

* provide life-enhancing experiences for carers

* support carers in ways that strengthen their sense of well-being and help to reduce stress levels through a range of activities

Our programme offers:

* an opportunity to experience activities such as Chair Yoga, painting, holistic therapies, meditation and relaxation, as well as to socialise or just sit quietly in the peaceful, supportive environment of The Old Courthouse

* seasonal outings to places of beauty and interest in the locality

* delicious and healthy vegetarian food

You are eligible if you:

We abide by the definition of a carer as someone who, without financial payment, is looking after a friend or relative who is frail or ill, or who has a physical, mental health or learning disability.
