Carers' Resource - You care for them, we care for you


Sponsored Walk for Carers Week!

Young people will be stepping out in aid of carers as they take on a 192-mile walk for #carersweek tomorrow.

They will be doing the coast-to-coast-equivalent walk in Roberts Park, Saltaire, Shipley – and you won’t be able to miss them in their Super Hero costumes!

We wish them lots of luck and a big thanks for supporting carers.

Our Chief Exec Chris Whiley says: “We’re very grateful to the young people and Bradford Youth Service for coming up with this idea to not only raise funds but also to raise awareness about the vital contribution unpaid carers make to our district and wider society.”
