Carers Week 2007 

A week dedicated to Swindon's 15,000 carers was launched today.

"It's so important we recognise their invaluable work," said Swindon Carers Centre chief executive, Ms Mutsai Hove Bird, talking of the people who, without payment, provide help and support to friends, neighbours or relatives who could not manage otherwise because of frailty, illness or disability.

And over the next seven days - Carers Week 2007 - the Swindon centre will be organising events, trips and campaigns to highlight the crucial role carers play in society.

The overriding message being - 'look after yourself', after recent research highlighted the fact that so many carers suffer health problems themselves as they struggle to juggle their roles as carers and living an everyday life.
