This is to let you know that Carers Network has just launched an exciting new crowdfunding campaign to provide information and tools to improve the health of local carers!
Three in five of us will become a carer at some point in our lives – looking after a family member or close friend. Every year more than two million people in the UK become a carer. This can happen very suddenly and radically change their lifestyle, which may lead to worse mental and physical health.
The project will give 100 carers the tools needed to improve their health while still attending to their caring duties. It will also give them the opportunity to meet other people in the same circumstances – which will help them battle the isolation that being a full-time carer can lead to.
Could You Help?
The goal is to raise a total of at least £5,000. It is ambitious, but this cause deserves an ambitious goal. And with your help, we can make this happen!
Are you able to help us? If you are able to make a donation to our project it would make a great difference to the people we strive to help. It would also be helpful if you could share our campaign with your friends and family, on your social media or with anyone you feel may be interested.
