Carers Week 2019 - Helping Carers get Connected

Date Posted: 3rd May 2019

This Carers Week 2019, we're coming together to help carers get connected. There are 6.5 million people in the UK who are carers. They will be looking after a family member or friend who has a disability, mental or physical illness or who needs extra help as they grow older.

Caring can be a hugely rewarding experience but carers often find it challenging to take care of their own wellbeing whilst caring. Its impact on all aspects of life from relationships and health to finances and work should not be underestimated. Caring without the right information and support can be tough.

We will be at the following locations during the week raising awareness of what we do and connecting Carers to the help they need

Tuesday 11th June                 ASDA Kingstown                   10-4pm

Thursday 13th June               TESCO Rosehill                       10-4pm 

Friday 14th June                   Sainsburys Caldewgate        10-4pm
