Lanarkshire Carers visit

Lanark and Hamilton East MP Angela Crawley today visited Lanarkshire Carers at Chatelherault Country Park for their Carers Week event.

Running from 6th to 12th June, Carers Week is an annual campaign to raise awareness of caring, highlight the challenges unpaid carers face and recognise the contribution they make to families and communities.

For 2022, the theme for carers week is to make caring visible, valued and supported.

Lanarkshire Carers ran a series of events including Tai Chi and wellbeing walks as well as providing tea and coffee for carers.

The event was the first in-person event held by Lanarkshire Carers since the start of Covid-19 pandemic.

Commenting, Lanark and Hamilton East MP Angela Crawley said: 

“I am grateful to every carer in my constituency and across the country for their hard work and dedication which can often go unrecognised.

“Carers contribute an incredible amount to our communities and I am committed to ensuring that they are valued and supported.

“I want to thank Lanarkshire Carers as well for everything they do to support carers in Lanarkshire and for putting on events like this to provide a bit of resbite and wellbeing support for carers.”
