2022 marks the 10th Anniversary of the formation of Durham County Carers Support, the primary Carer support service in County Durham and Darlington. We offer free, high-quality support to over 24,000 unpaid Carers, providing, amongst other things, information, advice, counselling and an opportunity for Carers to take a break from their caring role.
The challenge set to celebrate this achievement is, during the year of the anniversary, to raise £10,000 for the Carer Well-being Fund, a fund used to support Carers in crisis or financial hardship, as well as promoting Carer awareness and training.
COVID-19 has highlighted the important role played by Carers in our lives, a role which can be demanding, lonely and isolating. Please help us to improve the lives of Carers locally by supporting in any way you can!
We have a Just Giving page which you can use to fundraise for us, by doing any challenge, weather it’s walking, running, swimming, drawing or even shaving your hair/beard.
You can also choose to help us with this challenge by donating online: Donate (paypal.com)
We are also hosting an Anniversary Raffle. You can support us by donating a specific raffle prize, or by offering to sponsor a raffle prize or simply buy a ticket for £1 here: 10 Year Anniversary Cash Raffle – Durham County Carers Support (dccarers.org)
