|Caring For The Carers|
Hounslow Council event has information and lots of 'treats'
One in eight people are currently carers, and three in five of the population will be a carer at some point in their lives.
A carer is someone who looks after a family member, partner or friend because of their illness, frailty or disability, and all the care that they give is unpaid.
As part of Carers Week - a UK-wide annual awareness campaign aimed at improving the lives of carers and the people they care for – Hounslow Council is holding its annual Carers Event Day on Friday, 13 June.
To give carers a well-deserved treat, there will also be hair, make-up and massage treatments available.
Hounslow council offers a range of support to carers, such as practical advice, information about financial support available and even arrange time out and short breaks for them and the person they care for.
The event will include information stalls run by private and voluntary organisations promoting the support that they give to carers, and there will be workshops for carers including:
Carers can drop in at any point during the day to meet other carers over tea, coffee or lunch. To book an activity or for a pampering treatment, please contact Adam Murrell on 020 8583 3124 email firstname.lastname@example.org.
