The club meets monthly on an informal basis, following on from Digital Camera courses that have been run in conjunction with local FE colleges within Hertfordshire such as North Herts College, Herts Regional College and Oaklands College. Belonging to this group has enhanced wellbeing and reduced isolation, by providing carers with a regular break and an opportunity to learn and develop photographic and IT skills. Alongside this, there is a shared understanding and support amongst the group about their caring circumstances. Carers find that they can contribute and keep in touch remotely via email when they are unable to attend in person.
Taking photographs is a great opportunity to embrace the countryside and improve your health and wellbeing and can be managed alongside caring, due to the portable nature of cameras. Recent courses run by West Herts College have meant that the carers camera club is likely to expand in the future.
