Aberdeenshire Provost Jill Webster and Chair of Social Work and Housing Committee Cllr Karen Clark, are hosting three events this summer to say thank you to unpaid carers and recognise the tremendous contribution they make in Aberdeenshire.
Unpaid carers provide care to family members, other relatives, partners, friends or neighbours of any age affected by physical or mental illness, disability, frailty or substance misuse. Some carers care intensively or are long term carers while others care for shorter periods.
The events are being scheduled around Carers Week. The first is at the Ban-Car Hotel, Main Road, Lonmay, on Tuesday 2nd June at 12 noon.
Cllr Jill Webster said: “The events are to say thank you to all the unpaid carers in Aberdeenshire for the tremendous work they do and we hope as many as possible will be able to attend.
“It will be an opportunity for them to get away from their day to day life for an afternoon of information, light entertainment and lunch.”
The events are open to all unpaid carers in Aberdeenshire and anyone wishing to attend should phone 01224 664991 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
