Thousands of people flocked to Hertford Castle to enjoy the free charity music festival, Rock at the Castle, and donated a massive £5,590 to support our work with young carers.

Carers can give their views about the future of adult social care- how best to support people’s wellbeing and care needs and how to pay for it – as part of a consultation by the Local Government Association (LGA).

Enjoy some live music this August

If you enjoy music and want a free afternoon or evening out then you may be interested in two music festivals taking place in Hertford this August. We will be at the events raising funds and awareness!

A Charity Golf Day organised by Chesfield Downs Golf and Country Club Seniors Section Captain proved a hit and generous golfers raised around £2,700 towards our work identifying and supporting unpaid carers.

Children and young carers are to benefit from a new app that gives them information to help them in their caring role such as contacts for support and how to keep well. The Young Carers in Hertfordshire App is available for android devices via Google Play and a version for Apple devices is to be developed.

This Carers Week and beyond we should ‘think carer’ – making sure unpaid carers are identified, supported and helped to stay healthy and connected - the theme of the week.

Your votes could help us secure valuable Charity of the Year partnerships with Sainsbury’s stores!

We are delighted that golfers from Chesfield Downs Golf and Country Club Seniors Section are supporting our work providing information and services for unpaid carers as their Charity of the Year.
Unpaid carers living in Borehamwood are delighted to be getting a new local support group as we are launching our next Carers Support Hub there.
