Carers Week is just around the corner (12 – 18 June) and staff have been busy organising events and writing an exciting programme for the week. Please see the Programme below.
Carers will be active all across the city with information stalls in libraries, supermarkets and One Stop Centres. A Big Event on Saturday 17th June is an all-day information stall on Briggate. Please visit to say Hello and to help judge the Carers Leeds staff cake bake-off – the Carers Leeds contribution to the Great Get Together, inspired by Jo Cox MP.
Carers and the person they care for are invited to join us for a day out in Scarborough – let’s hope the sun will shine! And there are other activities for carers during the week – opportunities to mix with other carers for mutual support, socialising and celebration.
AND …. We’re launching the ‘Leeds Commitment to Carers’. This is a whole new approach to supporting carers in the city and focusses on bringing people together. Those with responsibility for planning and paying for services for carers, with organisations with a role in supporting carers. Leeds has a commitment to being a ‘Best City’ and being a best city for carers is an important part of this.
