Celebrating Carers in National Carers Week

The St Helens Carers Centre is a local voluntary organisation, passionate about supporting family and unpaid carers in our area. They offer a free and confidential service.

A Carer is someone who provides unpaid care and support to a family member or friend who has a disability, illness, mental health problem or who needs extra help as they grow older.

Caring will touch each and every one of us in our lifetime, whether we become a carer or need care ourselves.

Carers Week is an annual awareness campaign which takes place to celebrate and recognise the vital contribution made by the UK’s 6.5 million carers.

This year, Carers Week runs from 11 to 17 June 2018 and events will be taking place across the UK.

The St Helens Carers Centre invites local Carers to contact them and access their support.

Carers can contact them between 9.30am and 4pm, Monday to Friday, or until 8pm on Wednesdays (reduced hours will apply in Carers Week).

During Carers Week they will be celebrating all registered Carers, hosting special events for them. They will also be out and about in the community, looking to speak with new and hidden Carers. They will have an information stand in the Hardshaw Centre, St Helens on Friday 15 June from 10am to 3pm.
