Carers all over Gateshead are being celebrated at a number of events due to take place as part of Carers Week 2017.
There is something for everyone to enjoy with a local history day, carers books on prescription launch, a 21st celebration barbecue and the annual Party in the Park which has its very own Scrufts Dog Show. There will also be an opportunity to come along to Gateshead Civic Centre on Thursday 15 June, 11am – 3pm, to find out more about services for carers and their families.
Carers week is a national event which celebrates the contribution made by the 6.5 million people across the UK who provide unpaid care for a family member or friend. The focus for 2017 will be building carer friendly communities to ensure local services and employers understand a carer’s needs
