Carers Week

by timpickstone on 11 June, 2020

The hundreds of Bury people who provide unpaid care to the most vulnerable are being recognised in a range of activities during Carers Week (8-14 June).

This year, the coronavirus outbreak has put even more challenges on carers as they take onmore responsibilities for relatives and friends who are disabled, ill or older and who need support. 

During Carers Week, Bury Carers Hub is offering local carers the opportunity to join them for a range of daily activities: from online exercises and cooking to arts, music and quizzes.

Provided through n-compass, the new Bury Carers’ Hub offers carers a wide range of support services which include:

  • 1-2-1 or group-based support activities
  • helping carers to take a break and do something for themselves
  • online support include a Carers Community Network
  • access to a volunteer manned Carers Help and Talk (CHAT) Line 
  • providing information, advice, and guidance on specific topics
  • helping carers to access community, health, and wellbeing services
  • accessing a range of activities and training
  • volunteering opportunities as ‘Friends of Bury Carers’
  • access to a regular Bury Carers’ Hub magazine
  • The Hub can be contacted by:
