Am I a Carer?
“I didn’t know I was a carer.
I just look after…”
Have you said this?
YOUR donation really does make a difference to the Carers’ Centre and the carers we support. Below are just some examples of how we use the different amounts we receive:
£5 pays for refreshments for up to 10 carers at one of our regular Carer support groups, giving carers the chance to get out and meet others in similar circumstances as well as gain peer support.
£10 pays for a pamper session for a carer to have some time to themselves.
£20 pays for 30 copies of our regular newsletter, to be sent to carers across Telford, keeping them up-to-date on news and issues relevant to them and activities and groups that they could get involved in.
£60 pays for an individual support session for a carer with a support worker, providing direct information and support
£100 covers the cost of hiring a central venue to run a workshop or course for carers – teaching them invaluable skills and techniques to help make their caring life just that little bit easier.
£200 covers the cost of a day out for 20 carers with the person they care for
Just a note to say thank you so very much for all the help/support and caring about us though the worst time in our lives. You have been great. Thank you for all your help.
May I please say that I feel that you provide an absolutely essential service which gives the help and support when and where it is most needed. Thank you so much
