Carers Week Programme 2019

posted in: Events, Health, News

Slough is committed to ‘Getting Carers Connected’ this Carers Week (8th – 16th June 2019).

Local people, services and businesses will come together to get carers connected in Slough for Carers Week 2019 which runs from 8-16 June.

Slough Carers Support is inviting carers, services and businesses in the community to come together during Carers Week and celebrate the vital contribution made by carers in Slough.

This year’s timetable of events contains something for every Carer. The week starts early at HOME on the High Street. Young Carers are invited to take part in a beatboxing/rapping workshop, followed by a new show High Rise eState of Mind, which is a fast paced urban musical about class and housing and will appeal to young audiences.

Businesses are invited to a short workshop, providing simple tools and top tips to help as an organisation to identify and support carers in the workplace, on 10th June at the 29 Church Street Resource Centre.

There’s an opportunity for Carers to take some time to enjoy the long warm evenings with a gentle cycle ride from Herschel Park on 10th June.

Carers can make a date with friends to see a relaxed film screen of ABBA musical, Mamma Mia, at The Curve on 11th June. This has to be the ultimate feel good movie, guaranteed to lighten anyone’s day.

Helping Carers stay connected is this year’s Carers Week theme and in conjunction with Slough Borough Council, Slough Carers Support has organised an Information Day at Arbour Park on 12th June. Come along and find out what support is available to you and how to access it. Book in advance, lunch will be provided.

Looking after your own health and wellbeing is something that Carers often neglect. Slough Carers Support along with the voluntary sector Carers support groups will also be offering a mindfulness session, drop in sessions, crafts, free sports and leisure activities.
