The episode highlights the importance of self-care for caregivers, featuring a walking group run by a local charity in Sheffield. The group provides a space for carers to tend to their physical and mental well-being and connect with others who understand their experiences. For two of the walkers, it’s also an opportunity to share and strengthen their Christian faith.
