Debbie Gibbon, our CEO says: We are really excited to work together with Telford and Wrekin Council and a range of partner to continue our series of free events for carers.
Telford and Wrekin Council say:
“This year we are celebrating Carers Rights Day with a 1940’s style entertainment, extending a warm welcome also to veterans and their families.
“Please join us on the day to find about the ways in which Telford and Wrekin All Age Carers Centre and many local providers can make life better for you and the ones you care for.
“The day promises to be an exciting one, as we are also hosting a live war-time themed performance from “Casey’s on tour”. Come and enjoy this, along with cake and refreshments.
“We are looking forward to welcoming you to the event. Should you not be able to come on the day but you are interested to find out more about carers’ support, please get in touch with Telford and Wrekin All Age Carers Centre.”
Carers Rights Day is an annual campaign lead by Carers UK that aims to raise awareness of carers’ rights and the support available for them.
