Carers Week 2019: 10th - 14th June

What a fabulous week we had last week celebrating National Carers Week  - hopefully you heard us on the radio!!
Just as a little extra …..Scarborough and Ryedale Carers Resource wanted to share some important news:  We were delighted to be part of the team advising on script development for the recent young carer’s story line on EASTENDERS.  It was a privilege to be part of this work and a huge thanks must go to the ‘Team Eastenders’ for getting it right on screen, and raising the profile of the challenges young carers face.   Our work on this couldn’t have come at a better time following the NHS announcements last week regarding the increased support for young carers through GP’s surgeries.  Click the link below to read more.

Please take time to click on the video link above to meet our team - without them over 2500 carers per year across the Coast and Vale would not benefit from their support, knowledge and experience.
