Throwing It All Away

Recognise and support a Carer in Bucks

It's national Carers Week, and this year, the theme is “Recognising and Supporting Carers in the Community”

Carers Bucks, the charity dedicated to supporting unpaid carers in Buckinghamshire, support carers from age 5 up to 95 and older and have around 14,000 carers registered in Buckinghamshire. A carer is someone who is caring for a loved one who cannot manage independently without their support.

We've been speaking to Lucy Martin, the charity's CEO, to find out more about the week, the charity, and the support available all year round.
