Excellent Results for Carers Week

2015 Carers Week - CftC Go Purple

The team at Care for the Carers #GoPurple to raise awareness of carers at our events during Carers Week.

Carers Week 2015 was a great success for us here at Care for the Carers.  For the first time, we ran a special Carers Week website, which included a calendar populated with events run by ourselves and our partner organisations.
