It’s National Carers Week 13th – 19th June so when we heard that the Warwickshire Young Carers project and Guideposts Trust Rugby were having a ‘Cook Off’ to raise awareness for local young carers we were more than happy to supply them with ten of our traditional chefs hats to help them look and feel the part for their charity awareness event!
The ‘Cook Off’ is to be held on Tuesday 14th June at the Hill Street Youth and Community Centre in Rugby, Warwickshire from 4:00pm where the aim is to cook a delicious three course meal on a strict budget. The newly appointed Mayor of Rugby, Gwen Hotten, will be on the judging panel for the event and there will also be a stand where you can get more information on the support services available from both projects. If you would like to find out more about this event, please contact Anne Deas on (01788) 577825.
The Warwickshire Young Carers Project is an independent local charity that aims to improve the lives of young carers in the county by offering free and confidential support. The project works with young carers from 8yrs upwards, encouraging them to also cater for their own needs and personal development alongside caring for a member of their family. The Rugby Guideposts are a charity with over 30 years experience in helping people with dementia, mental health problems and learning disabilities. They can provide support workers to those with dementia and also offer information a free information service for carers of someone with dementia.
