Support day for young carers in Warrington

Warrington Guardian: Clr Pat Wright Clr Pat Wright

WIRED young carers service is hosting an open day to raise awareness of the support available to carers.

The service will also be raising money to fund activities and trips for young carers and young adult carers.

Clr Pat Wright, executive board member for health, wellbeing and adult services, said: “Many carers do not regard themselves formally as a carer, but just to be getting on with looking after a relative or friend as others would do in the same situation.

“We hope we find some hidden carers on the day as well as raise vital funds for future activities and trips.”

The open day will take place on Saturday, March 22, at the offices on Sankey Street from 12pm.

Does she get a backhander from ATOS or what? Hate her smug face please change the stock picture WG her smiling like this when people who need disability benefits can't get them. She is a disgrace to the town and does not fight for what the people of this town who have genuine disabilities need! your a disgrace, fight against ATOS and their policies, rules and then you will gain my respect if your not up to it then resign.

..but well done to all the young people in the town who look after their loved ones. It can't be easy worrying about and taking care of someone each day when you could be out with your friends. Well done, you should be very proud of yourselves. Anything that gives these kids a break and some fun is great with me!

It would be better to have a picture of the young people or the team involved

Do agree with you PageA but should these young people be burdened with taking care of "loved ones" in the first place? Surely these people should have care all taken care of! These kids should not need a break as they should just live their lives as normal, their dependants disabilities should be catered for at our expense through the Council or NHS. My point was to get on ESA is a mission in itself and ATOS are not helping anyone neither is Cllr Wright and her smug comfortable lifestyle face.
