Carers Week 2020

Each year Edinburgh Carers Council hosts an event for Carers Week, usually a social gathering or a fun workshop.

This year Carers Week is from the 8th-14th of June and just because we can't all get together physically shouldn't mean we can't participate in Carers Week in a different way.

We were thinking that because we're not able to get together, and many of us aren't able to take a holiday or a respite break away from home...

We would like to hear from you about a time when you went on a holiday, trip or attended an event and really enjoyed yourself! And/or, where you're looking forward to going or what you're looking forward to doing in the future (once it's safe to do so).

We're looking for short written responses (and/or photographs). It can only be a sentence or two, it doesn't need to be long! You can include as much or as little as you like. We'll be sharing these collated responses publicly (including here on our website) so please don't include anything you wouldn't want to be shared. However please note that we can anonymise your responses if you prefer. Please let us know if you would like your name attached when submitting.

Please send your responses to by Wednesday 3rd June. If you'd like to include any photos please send as an attachment in your email.

We very much look forward to hearing from you! ☺️
