It's Volunteers Week (June 1st - 12th) and we want to thank our dedicated, selfless volunteers who help us identify and support unpaid carers.
Letchworth carers filled a community hall when they attended an information event to learn more about the Carers Support Hub we plan for their area.
Supporters enjoy preview theatre performance and help raise almost £1,000 so we can continue providing advice and support to people caring for a loved one or friend.
We are over the moon to have won a GSK Impact Award, which recognises excellence in charities improving health and wellbeing in their communities. We were one of 10 charities to get this national award.
We are in discussions with Hertfordshire Crossroads-South about how we can work more closely together through merging into one charity.
We would like to wish our volunteers and supporters as well as unpaid carers across the county all the best this festive period.
The Government’s Comprehensive Spending Review and Autumn Statement brought some good news with an increase in the basic state pension and a stop to some tax credit reforms, but Carers in Hertfordshire feels more must be done to support unpaid carers. To find out our reaction to the review
We are delighted to have achieved a significant milestone in our efforts to identify and support unpaid carers by issuing our 5,000th Carers’ Passport discount card.
Our Carers’ Passport is a photo ID card that gives carers access to savings in participating restaurants, shops and businesses across Hertfordshire. Since we launched it in May 2013, over 350 businesses have signed up to support it with 100’s of discounts and offers.
