Carers Week (7th - 13th June 2021)

Running from 7-13 June, Carers Week shines a light on the thousands of unpaid carers there are in the UK and celebrates the huge contribution made by this often-hidden group of people.

‘Make caring visible and valued’ is the theme of this year’s Carers Week, and Carer Support Wiltshire are joining with organisations across the country to raise awareness of the work carers do.

They will also be running several events during the week for unpaid carers.

Tuesday 8 June, 11:00am - 12:00pm

Carer support group

Join Carer Support Wiltshire staff members Diana and Alison for a friendly online support group. You will have opportunity to ask any questions you might have and speak to other carers.

Wednesday 9 June, 11:00am - 12:30pm

Wiltshire Wildlife Trust nature-based wellbeing workshop

An online workshop that will discuss how nature is important for our mental wellbeing and enthuse us to get out in nature and explore.
