Carers – Don’t Tone Alone!

Carers – Don’t Tone Alone!

Please vote for Carers Network!

Carers Network are approaching the Aviva Community Fund to support a project that will provide unpaid carers with personalised support to improve their physical health and live an independent, healthy and fulfilling life.

We need your vote to help us secure this funding!

You can find out more information and vote here

If successful we will deliver a 12-month project that will work to change the behaviour of carers, empowering them to enhance their physical, mental and emotional health wellbeing.

The project will include:

  • Personal Training Service for Carers
  • Wellbeing and information Workshops

We would like people to vote for this project because the potential benefits are so huge.

In addition to the personal wellbeing of the unpaid carer being improved, it allows them to provide better and more consistent care for their loved one.

This is of vital importance, because in the event of a carer falling ill, or being physically unable to cope with the burden of their caring role, there will be a huge impact on the wellbeing of the cared for person as well.
