A Hertfordshire charity is reminding those providing unpaid care that they’re entitled to support from them.

Carers in Hertfordshire are reminded people during Carers Week - from June 6 to June 12-  that can access support from the charity.

The charity is invited unpaid family and friend carers to their free events including a nature walk in Hitchin which took place yesterday, and support group in Royston, and a Zoom quiz night today.

There will also be a Carers' Cream Tea in Borehamwood tomorrow.

A spokesperson from Carers in Hertfordshire said: “Making unpaid family and friend carers visible, valued and supported is this year’s theme.

"Anyone caring for a relative, partner or friend, who is ill, disabled, elderly, or misuses drugs or alcohol, is encouraged to identify themselves as carers and connect with services.”

The charity provides information, guidance, learning opportunities and support for Hertfordshire carers and bereaved carers.
