The event will have 20 exhibitors who will be providing information on a range of issues to support carers to care well and safely and support them to be healthy themselves. Complementary therapy taster sessions, beauty makeovers and mindfulness sessions will also be available at the event.

Carers’ week is an opportunity to recognise and celebrate the major role carer’s play in providing care and support to people who are sick, frail or disabled. During Carers Week the Trust will be providing and facilitating a number of events to promote the health and well being of carers. These events will be taking place in a variety of locations across the Trust area and will also be targeted at staff who are also carers.
