Chance for male carers in Bradford area to attend free sports sessions and meet other carers

Free sports sessions are being held as part of the Men Care Too project run by Carers’ Resource.

Men Care Too is offering all male carers in the Bradford area the chance to start the new year having fun, meeting other carers and perhaps getting back in shape with sports sessions at BEAP Community Partnership in Manningham, fortnightly on Thursday evenings.

The sessions are run in partnership with BEAP’s Men Reaching Out project and Better Start Bradford’s Dads Project.

Carers have chosen to play badminton at the sessions recently. This may change to include other sports, such as football or cricket.

All levels and abilities are welcome.

Mohammed Mahboob, Male Carers Development Officer at Carers’ Resource, said: “These are great sessions for male carers to enjoy sports, stay healthy and active, and share experience with other male carers.”

The sports sessions run every other Thursday, from 5-6pm at BEAP Community Partnership, 31 Cornwall Road, Manningham, Bradford.

Male carers in the Bradford area who would like to attend the sessions or want more information can contact

Before Christmas, male carers in Bradford took part in Men Care Too activities including swimming, a cinema trip and getting together for an Italian meal.

Carers’ Resource launched the Men Care Too project last year to improve the wellbeing of male carers, giving them the chance to take part in fun activities, meet other male carers, chat, relax and support each other.
