Sport and Leisure Opportunities for Carers in Carers Week

Voluntary Action Shetland and Shetland Recreational Trust are pleased to announce a great opportunity for carers during Carers Week.

We will be offering  any carers the opportunity to use any of the  leisure centres for free during Carers Week which takes place from the 6-12th June 2016.

Being active is great for your physical health and fitness, and evidence shows that it can also improve your mental wellbeing. These are all things that are essential in order for a carer to be able to continue in their caring role. There are many activities at the leisure centres that you can choose from including swimming, a session in the gym, table tennis, bowls and many more.

If you would like to use the gym during carers week you will need to have an induction, let us know and we can help to organise this. In some cases we could offer group inductions for a group of carers to go along, this may help some people who are feeling a bit nervous.

In order to take advantage of this offer you will need to be registered with VAS Carers support so that we can let the Leisure centres know to let you in for free that week. Please phone us on 01595 743823 or email carers@shetland.org
