What could you do to raise awareness of caring for Carers Week 2019?
At some point in our lives, all of us will care for a loved one or be cared for ourselves. Caring can be a hugely rewarding experience, but sometimes it comes with its difficulties.
Touch FM and Forever Mobility on The Delph in Swadlincote are helping carers around here get connected for Carers Week.
Carers Week from June 10th - 16th raises awareness of caring, what a carer is, how caring might affect your life and recognises the contribution carers make to families and communities.
More than 6.5 million people in the UK are currently caring unpaid for a family member or friend who is older, disabled or seriously ill. Yet many of us don’t identify ourselves as carers – we simply see ourselves as spouses, parents, sons, daughters or friends.

And call in to Forever Mobility’s new location on The Delph in Swadlincote for 10% of all disability products.
