Carers Week Events June 7th -13th 2021

Running from 7th - 13th June, 'Making Carers Visible and Valued' is the theme of this year's Carers Week. Carer Support Wiltshire are joining with organisations across the country to raise awareness of the work carers do.


They will also be running several events during the week for unpaid carers, which you are welcome to join them for:


Online Carer Support Group
Tuesday 8th June, 11:00am-12:00pm
Join Carer Support Wiltshire staff members Diana and Alison for a friendly online support group. You will have opportunity to ask any questions you might have and speak to other carers.

Online Wiltshire Wildlife Trust nature-based wellbeing workshop
Wednesday 9 June, 11:00am - 12:30pm
An online workshop that will discuss how nature is important for our mental wellbeing and enthuse us to get out in nature and explore. A pre-workshop activity will be to get out in nature for a walk and collect or photograph natural objects - as many as you can starting with the letters A-C. They will then share their favourites during the session!
Places are limited on this workshop.

Virtual Carers Cafe
Thursday 10th June, 2:00pm - 3:00pm
All carers are welcome at this friendly carers cafe hosted by a volunteer from Zurich Community Trust.

Mental Health Resilience Workshop
