Service Providers: Take Part in South Tyneside Carers Week (9th – 13th June 2014)

South Tyneside Council will be promoting services available to support Carers during Carers Week, through a series of events, information days and presentations.

Most of the events will be held in South Tyneside’s Central Library, or in other venues within South Tyneside.  Finalised dates and venues will be published at a later date.

Information is aimed at Carers, who are people looking after friends or family on an unpaid basis.  Service providers are expected from a range of sectors and may support any age group or condition, and offer some support either to give Carers a break in the form of respite care services, or activities, emotional or therapeutic support to Carers themselves.

How to get involved: If you are interested in providing information to support Carers to access your service, promote your services or present information at one of the events, then please contact South Tyneside Self Directed Support team by email at carers@southtyneside.gov.uk (or contact Jacqui Kaid on 0191 424 4191).
