We pledge to make sure our modern office is always open to all carers, paid and volunteers, if you are in Norwich and want access to a PC we have a hot desk available free of charge, the coffee is always on and there is always an "ear" available if you just want some advice or support. Carers are the glue that hold the UK together and we are committed to supporting them in every way we can.

As part of our celebrations for Carers Week we will be running our popular Fish N Chip Club on Friday 16th June, 11.00 am - 1.00pm at the Carers Centre, 1 Duke Street, Fenton, Stoke-on-Trent. There is a small charge of £2.50 which pays for the fish n chips. If your in a caring role and would like a break and a chance to meet with other Carers please drop in to this popular group.

A chance for Carers and the people they care for to come along and enjoy a day of information, support and refreshments in a relaxing and social environment.

To build a carer friendly community within the workplace, by reviewing and refreshing our package of support for Carers, to ensure we are doing all we can to support our employees with caring responsibilities.

Are you an informal Carer who supports a family member, friend or neighbour. If so, come and join us for a light-hearted couple of hours with or without the person you care for. We provide the opportunity for you both to enjoy yourself, chat to other Carers, join in activities, or speak to support staff about the difficulties you may have in your caring role. No booking is required, just come along as everyone is welcome! Refreshments are available. The group meets between 1.00 pm and 3.00 pm at The Surgery, Heathcote Street, Chesterton.

Northern Devon Healthcare NHS Trust pledges to recognise your role as a carer. We will involve you in decisions about the care of your loved one. We will signpost you to information and support. We will respect, involve and treat you as an expert in care. We will treat you with dignity and compassion. We will consider your needs, and we will support you to take up employment, education and leisure through providing replacement care where appropriate. We will publicise Carers Week to our staff and remind them of all the ways they can help carers in their day-to-day work.

I Pledge my support to all you Carers out there

The Royal British Legion will be holding a coffee morning in our Swindon Pop In on Friday 16th June, from 11am – 1pm, to mark this. Royal British Legion staff and volunteers will be able to talk about the different forms of help that we can provide to carers. The coffee morning will provide an opportunity to talk to our specialist team of Independent Living Advisors, who can offer a variety of services to help the Veteran community to access the support that they need to continue to live independently with equal choices and freedoms. The coffee morning will coincide with our regular ‘Knit and Natter’ group, which meets on the first and third Friday mornings of each month, from 11am – 1pm, so there will be an opportunity to talk to our knitters, who are busy knitting poppies for this year’s Poppy Appeal, too.
