People across the country are facing new challenges as a result of the Coronavirus outbreak. Many are taking on more caring responsibilities for their relatives and friends who are disabled, ill or older.

We want to recognise the difficulties these carers are experiencing and provide the help, understanding and support that they need.
So during Carers Week – 8 – 14 June 2020, we’re coming together to help make caring visible.

Local carers support organisations will be holding virtual coffee mornings, workshops, poetry writing events for carers this week.  They will also be available for telephone chats and online coffee and tea!  To find out more please contact:
