Tour to shine light on car­ers

The Press and Journal (Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire) - - LOCAL | NEWS -

A lo­cal char­ity has com­pleted a week-long tour to cel­e­brate car­ers across the north-east.

Aberdeenshire Carer Sup­port Ser­vice, run by so­cial care char­ity Quar­ri­ers, aimed to raise aware­ness of the 20,000 peo­ple in the re­gion who sup­port fam­ily mem­bers af­fected by dis­abil­i­ties or men­tal health is­sues.

Quar­ri­ers teamed up with the Aberdeenshire Li­brary and In­for­ma­tion Ser­vice to reach car­ers in ru­ral ar­eas.

The five-day event was created in hon­our of Car­ers Week.

If you are a carer, or would like more in­for­ma­tion about the ser­vice, please call 01467 538700 or email ab­erdeen­shire­car­ers@ quar­ri­
