Making Carers Visible and Valued!
Carers Week will be taking place this year during the week of 7th-13th June 2021. The theme for this national event is ‘Make Carers Visible and Valued’ - and we need your help to make this happen during lockdown!
Carers Count are asking our carers and staff members to get involved in an exciting virtual ‘tour’ of Yorkshire and Lancashire. There are several Carers Count teams which work across Kirklees, Selby and Lancashire, so we are joining forces for this very special project and encouraging everyone to raise awareness for issues affecting carers looking after loved ones. Please let us know if you would like to be involved!
Wherever you are, we welcome you to join us in walking, cycling or running to places of interest near you around Yorkshire or Lancashire. Beginning on Friday 23rd April, we will have 7 weeks to complete our challenge of a grand total of 526 miles! Let us know how many miles you travelled and we will add them together to celebrate our collective efforts.
The tour will start from our office at Empire House in Dewsbury and together we will travel to different places, creating a fantastic route around both counties. Please send us photos of all your interesting destinations! We will reach our final stop, the Carers Count office at Brian Jackson House in Huddersfield, on Friday 11 June 2021.
