So it is Carers Week and we kicked off in style with a wonderful new project on Saturday 5h June with St Margaret’s House, working in partnership to develop a Digital Art Project looking at Caring and Carers and exploring this though the famous book The Borrowers. Thank you to everyone involved it was fun, informative and it is going to be something special.
One of the artists Kazuko is from one of my favourite bands form the 80’s called The Frank Chickens, so I was fangirling like you wouldn’t believe according to the carers attending.
Have fun this week carers and join in one or more of our activities ..
The Creative Writing wanted to send this message to carers and especially Future Carers as their contribution to Carers Week 2021.
Dear Future Carer
No one expects to be a carer and if you are really honest with yourself no one really wants to join this club.
Once you are a part of this club, thank god for the Carers Centre. You will make lifelong friendships, have great peer support, find a way forward, you will laugh together and cry together.
Carers really trust other carers and will be there for you if you need their support, advice, and humour.
Make sure you join in activities as they will help you with your mental health for example this creative writing group.
Be strong if you can and keep well, and don’t worry if you fall apart sometimes.
