When someone becomes a Chrysalis member, the whole family is involved. This means everyone can be part of the club, contribute, have a say and see how the person they care about is getting on.
Family members/carers can come to sessions or take time out. We are here to help anyone in the family at any stage from pre-diagnosis onwards.
Members don’t need to come to sessions regularly to be part of Chrysalis. Until they tell us they don’t need us any more they remain members, even if we haven’t seen them for a while.
As well as learning new things, members enjoy socialising, competing together in a friendly way and have a good laugh in a safe, non-judgemental environment. As people make friends and become more confident they often come to more sessions.
Volunteers are also members of Chrysalis, they are at the heart of the support we provide.
