The Spring/Summer 2018 issue of Carewaves is full of articles about what we and other organisation have been doing to support unpaid carers.
You can also find out about some of the initial findings from our survey to find out about the caring situation in Hertfordshire and as always there are details about our free, upcoming, courses and workshops, forums and other activities.
You can also read about:
- Our plans to mark Carers Week (11th – 17th June 2018), which incorporates an exhibition of photographs taken by our Carers’ Camera Club members. The exhibition is on at the Gordon Craig Theatre, Stevenage from 5th – 20th June 2018.
- Tips to prepare for emergencies or the future if you are unable to continue caring;
- Our Young Carers’ Conference and upcoming events for young carers; and
- Holidays – some recommendations from carers and information about grants or financial assistance that could be available to help towards costs;

Keeping in touch
We are changing the way we are communicating with carers. In addition to the website and biannual Carewaves magazine, we would like to keep you up to date via e-bulletins. You may be asked for an email address when we contact you. We are also investigating sending text alerts to remind you if you have booked onto a course or workshop, rather like some dentists and doctor surgeries do. If you would like to be kept up to date in this way please let us know.
