This Carers Week (6th – 12th June 2022) charity Carers in Hertfordshire is encouraging people who provide unpaid care to a relative, partner, or friend who is ill, disabled, elderly, or misuses drugs or alcohol, to be identified and connect with organisations, like them, which can provide information and support.
We are planning to launch a Carers’ Reading Group and are holding an event for carers to learn more about the different ways groups can be run and be involved in shaping our one.
TV Producer Simon Lythgoe, whose career credits include American Idol and Gladiators in several countries, became our first charity place London Marathon runner on Sunday 3rd October 2021 and hailed the event incredible but tough. He has raised close to £5,000 towards our work identifying and supporting unpaid family and friend carers.
This Carers Week (7th-13th June 2021) we helped to make carers and caring visible and valued – the theme of the week. We reached out to carers to provide information to help them in their caring role and had opportunities for carers to socialise and have time to themselves.
It's Volunteers' Week (1st -7th June 2021) and we want to thank all our wonderful volunteers for their hard work and dedication in helping us with provide information and support to unpaid family and friend carers when they need it, particularly during the last year through the coronavirus pandemic. We'd also welcome more people to volunteer with us, so if you are interested please get in touch with our Volunteer Service.
