Day Four of Carers Week 2021

Welcome to Day Four of Carers Week 2021. The theme this year is 'Making Caring Visible and Valued.' During the week, Shetland Carers hope to raise the profile of unpaid carers and try to identify hidden carers who are not currently receiving support.

Today's theme is 'Parent Carers, Families and Young Carers.'

For your information today:

*Today's activity is our first virtual meeting of our NEW Carers Support Group through Zoom, at 7pm tonight.

Please note, a code will be required to access Zoom. To book, please email [email protected] or send us a Facebook message. Colouring sheets will be provided for you to use throughout the session.
