New Day Care Centre

On July 12th we officially launch our new day care centre. Based in Forge Fach Community Resource Centre in Clydach, the day care centre aims to provide an array of activities, social interaction, games and Day trips that will allow Carers to have a break from their caring role. Open every Tuesday from 10am – 3pm with transport available on request it is hoped this new venture will replicate our existing and very popular weekend service.

Well, here we are and it’s June already! I’m pleased to report that our fundraising activities are going very well indeed!! I wanted to take this opportunity to give you an update on what’s been happening! As you will be aware, Carers Trust Swansea Bay is a charitable organisation which relies on funding to provide its much-needed services to Carers of all ages in the Swansea Bay area. We are passionate about supporting carers, the cared-for and young carers, and this is why we want to do our bit to help.

100 miles in 100 days challenge

It’s day 85 and so far 77.7 miles have been collectively walked by office staff at Carers Trust Swansea Bay. As we come to the end of this challenge, I’m sure that all those who have been involved will agree, that the challenge hasn’t so much been the ‘walking’ it’s been finding the time to leave our desks and complete the mile walk. Workloads are increasingly heavier and more demanding so it’s been a real push to get out there! Much appreciation to all those who have been involved and to those who have supported us in this challenge. To celebrate the challenge coming to an end we’re going to have a finale event at the office in the form of a cake sale! Please come and join us…see info below. So far this event has raised £220.78 – it’s not too late to sponsor!!
