Carers Week Round-up 2018
Carers Week is an annual campaign to raise awareness of caring, highlighting the challenges carers face and recognise the contribution they make to families and communities throughout the UK. The campaign is brought to life by thousands of individuals and organisations who come together to organise activities and events throughout the UK, drawing attention to just how important caring is.
VSA Carers Resource Service celebrated Carers Week this year by hosting a series of events and activities across the city to help support carers to stay ‘Healthy and Connected’.
Being Healthy and Connected is about building communities which support carers to look after their loved ones well, while recognising that they are individuals with health and wellbeing needs of their own.
Events that were ran this year included:
- Carers Café at Aberdeen Central Library
- Information stands at the Health Village and the Trinity Centre
- Carers Roadshow at Royal Cornhill Hospital
- Cooking for Carers with CFINE at Cook at the Nook
- Afternoon Tea and Spa at the Altens Hotel
We hope that the carers who attended the events this year had a great time. We are always open to suggestions around what activities and events carers would like to see and participate in during Carers Week. You can comment or make suggestions by e-mailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
