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.

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.
