Today we’ve had the pleasure of meeting Jill Livingstone of the Carers Trust based in Shrewsbury.
Jill was here to meet our chairman and our disability ambassador Roger Whitting, in exploring ways that the Ironworks can assist the caring community.
The British Ironworks has a Carers Club, this initiative looks to embrace caring groups and support these community champions in whatever way possible.
We are now proposing available dates for Jill, in order that the Ironworks hosts a carers visit for young carers.
Young carers, usually go broadly unnoticed, these can be children as young as 5 yrs of age up to 18 yrs.
These children carry the weight, of caring for an adult, whether it’s a parent or family member and as a consequence miss out on activities and leisure opportunities that other children benefit from.
The Ironworks is working with carers and carer groups, to ensure that some of these groups are rewarded, with some additional support and not forgetting fun.
If your associated with a carer group or association and want to take this opportunity to explore any benefits, then please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
Carers Club within the British Ironworks, can be contacted through the website or directly on 01691-610952
