Working with Carers Week for 10 Years
“Ireland’s 500,000 family carers will not be forgotten during Covid-19 as they continue to care for loved ones at home. Oneline events will be taking place throughout the week "Liam O'Sullivan, (Executive Director, Care Alliance Ireland)
The objectives of the week are 3-fold
Articles, News, Events, Social Media
"The Irish Red Cross Booklet (HelpingYou Care), Battery pack and travel mug were great additions to this year's Carers Week"
"We held an event for Carer Advocates to mark Carers Week. Next year we hope to build on this and the number of carers who engage with our organisation."
"I found the music therapy workshop absolutely fascinating"
"Went for lunch. Very enjoyable and got to meet new people I would not otherwise have had the opportunity to do so. Thank you."
"I won the phone ring, travel cup, carer book and pen. Amazing merchandise for sure, I would love the battery pack because I'd say it (is) brilliant"
