Afternoon Tea with Connecting Carers

Connecting Carers would like to invite unpaid carers in Highland to come together during Carers Week to celebrate the vital contribution carers make every day.  

Carers need access to breaks – from a few hours to a couple of weeks – to recharge the batteries and maintain a life of their own alongside caring.  Please join us for coffee, cake & chat or afternoon tea.

For more information and to book your place follow the link below to details of the event closest to where you are.

All events are free for unpaid carers in Highland.  Places are limited to early booking is advised.

Carers Week 2018 'Healthy & Connected'

Carers Week is an annual campaign to raise awareness of caring, highlight the challenges carers face and recognise the contribution they make to families and communities.
This Carers Week, we’re coming together to support the health and wellbeing of carers in Highland. Around 32,000 people in Highland are carers, looking after a parent, partner, child or friend who has a disability, illness, mental health problem or who needs extra help as they grow older.
