Carers Week

Carers Week: Monday 8th – Sunday 14th June 2020

We are busy preparing (again!) for #CarersWeek! Due to the current COVID-19 situation we are unable to bring you our original planned programme of localised carer events, so instead we are going online!

Check out everything that is happening below. If you have any questions or would like to book, you can email online@devoncarers.org.uk

Are you missing sport on the TV?  Come and show off your knowledge in our Quiz! Join other carers for some light-hearted entertainment about bats and balls, goals and grounds, triumphs and trophies.  Could you be the next Phil Tuffnel or Matt Dawson?!
