We had a fantastic day with carers from Nottingham City and County joining us to celebrate Carers Week. The carers enjoyed shoulder and hand massages, a drumming workshop, making their own smoothies on our Smoothie bike, bingo, tombola, crafts and games in the garden and some delicious food and refreshments. We had a fabulous selection of professionals also joining us and providing valuable information for Carers.

A huge THANK YOU to everyone involved.

Carers Week is an annual campaign to raise awareness of caring, highlight the challenges unpaid carers face and recognise the contribution they make to families and communities throughout the UK. It also helps people who don’t think of themselves as having caring responsibilities to identify as carers and access much-needed support.

The theme for Carers Week 2024 is ‘Putting carers on the map‘. 

More information will follow soon on what we are planning for the week.

Martin Lewis: ‘Chancellor – will you end the awful cliff-edge on Carer’s Allowance that means you earn 1p over £151 and you lose £80 a week?’
