Furness Carers Update: 3 August 2020
This week would have been the start of our Young Carers Summer Activities Programme, where we normally arrange trips away, activities around Furness and at our Carers Centre and do an activity each day, however this year due to the COVID-19 Pandemic we have been unable to do these as we continue to support our Young Carers and their families with social distancing and keeping safe. However although we are not going to be able to meet up and have lots of fun we have arranged a virtual summer programme which kicks off on 5 August and continues to run throughout the summer school holiday period until the end of August. Over the coming weeks we will keep you updated on the fun the Young Carers have and we give you updates on any decisions on when other Carer support activities will be able to start again.
To continue to allow for safe working practices our office premises still remain closed to Carers and the general public until further notice (unless an essential face to face appointment is needed), it continues to be very important that we get the message out that we are still open, working hard and supporting unpaid Carers throughout Furness, so we are asking if you need any information, a Carers review or a new Carers Assessment, or if you want to make a referral for an Adult or Young Carer then please leave us a message on our answerphone 01229 822822, giving us your name and a contact number, or alternatively send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org our answer machine and emails are checked daily Monday to Friday and someone will get back to you ASAP.
