Trafford Carers Centre celebrates Carers Week 2022

Trafford Carers Centre hosted a special event for carers on June 6 in celebration of Carers Week 2022.

The event at St Matthew’s Community Hall in Stretford offered a relaxing day of pampering including hand and shoulder massage, afternoon tea, live music, an art display, bingo – and of course a catch up with friends.

Carers Week is celebrated nationally every June to raise awareness of caring, highlight the challenges unpaid carers face and recognise the contribution they make to families and communities throughout the UK.

Local support services were also there to offer help and guidance for those attending – including Age UK Trafford.

Trafford Carers Centre have been offering support to carers for 20 years in the area.

Their special ‘Lightening Bee Reporters’ project has been helping carers from the charity to express themselves through different forms of media such as writing, poetry and video making.

Take a look at the video created by reporters Carole, Chris and Eileen at the event.
