Carers Week 2019


A huge thanks to all who came to our Walk A Mile in Swindon on 8th June 2019 to launch Carers Week here. Teamwork with other charities, organisations, commissioners, MPs and brilliant supporters to raise awareness of the vital work carers do in Swindon. This year’s theme for Carers Week was all around Getting Carers Connected. Susanna Jones, CEO of Swindon Carers Centre says “Carers in Swindon save our economy £395 million per year. They are an unpaid workforce supporting our health and social care systems and they deserve to have support, information, advice and advocacy too. It’s all our responsibilities to keep carers connected to their community, to employment, to education, to information and to each other”. (Photo credit: Swindon Advertiser)
