Swindon Carers Centre is inviting people to support unpaid carers during Carers Week (June 5-11).

An unpaid carer is anyone looking after a family member, partner or friend who needs help because of an illness, frailty, disability, mental health condition or an addiction and cannot cope without their support.

Swindon Carers Centre is a charity that works to improve the wellbeing of people with caring responsibilities in the borough of Swindon so that they can live a healthy, fulfilling life alongside their caring role.

At 11am on Saturday June 10 it is holding its Walk A Mile event, a circular walk around Swindon town centre, which people can join in. The walk starts and finishes at The Swindon Hub, The Parade, Swindon, SN1 1BA.

The charity also has an online raffle and tickets cost £1 each. The prizes include hampers of goodies, beauty vouchers and restaurant vouchers. You can take part in the raffle online here: https://www.peoplesfundraising.com/raffle/swindon-carers-centre-carers-week-2023-raffle

Carers Week is a national week raising awareness of unpaid carers and ensuring that they are recognised for the vital work they do.
