The occasion will offer carers a chance to access support and information from a whole host of agencies who will be exhibiting on the day. These include charities and community organisations, health and social care organisations, statutory agencies, police and fire service, housing providers, lawyers and financial inclusion agencies.

Visitors are welcome to drop in anytime from 10.30 a.m. until 3.00 p.m. - there will be an opportunity to have some health and beauty treatments or a chance to try cup cake decorating.  There will also be performances from musicians from the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra.

Carers Week highlights the vital contribution made by carers to their families and communities in providing unpaid care for someone who is ill, frail or disabled.

This year, with the help of Care Minister Norman Lamb, health and social care professionals, businesses and the Carers Week charity supporters, The Carers Week Quest was launched – this is the greatest ever drive to reach out to the UK's carers.

The Carers Week Quest 2014 will rely on the help of individuals and organisations - including community groups, GPs, health and social care professionals, employers - to connect with those who are caring. The aim is to encourage improved collaborative working in local communities in order to reach the thousands of carers missing out on help.

The very nature of caring means very often people don’t at first, or sometimes ever, identify themselves as carers. Rather, they think of themselves simply as wife, husband, son, daughter, mum, dad or perhaps grandparent, niece or nephew helping a loved one. Without the right help and support caring can have a devastating impact – carers can quickly become cut off with their physical and emotional health, work and, their finances all hit hard

Local Solutions is delighted to be pledging their support to the Carers Week Quest by running the event.
