National Carers' Week comes to Dudley

A special programme of events and activities will be held in the borough this week to celebrate National Carers’ Week.

The Dudley Council-run 'Carers’ Network' has teamed up with organisations across the borough to offer advice, support and guidance to carers across the borough throughout the week.

The carers’ network in partnership with the council’s enabling community support team and the Black Country Living Museum kicked off proceedings by hosting an event to celebrate carers at the museum Yesterday.  

The event included performances by Dynamics Rock and Pop Choir; traditional rag rugging workshops and a carers’ information market in the main visitor reception.

The carers’ network will also hold its carers’ cafe at Queen’s Cross Network, Wellington Road on Thursday June 15 from 10.30am to 1pm.  During the morning carers will be able to find out more about the support available to them. Councillor Nicolas Barlow, cabinet member for adult social care, said:

“Carers across the borough do an amazing job caring for their loved ones and this week is all about giving something back to them. 

"We want to give carers the opportunity to talk to people and share experiences and make sure they are informed about what support is available to them across a variety of organisations.”

Other events throughout the week include a carers’ information session at the Health Hub at Russells Hall Hospital from 10am to 4pm on Thursday June 15.
