Or just come for a cuppa and piece of cake and a sit down.

Volunteers from the Carers' Centre Circle of Friends Group will be ready to greet you and make you feel at home.

Handmade cards, crafts and plants will be available to buy on the day so you can also pick yourself a bargain!

The Co-operative Membership logoSunderland Caring for Carers Awards 2011

Sponsored by The Co-operative Membership

There is still time to say thank to workers who have supported you in your caring role by nominating them for the Caring for Carers Awards 2011.

Do you live in the City of Sunderland and look after a family member or friend with a long-term illness or disability?

Has a worker from health, social services, a home care agency, a voluntary or community project or another organisation been of particular support to you in your caring role?

For example a nurse, doctor, dentist, optician, pharmacist, consultant, social worker, care worker, or a voluntary or community worker.

The awards aim to recognise workers who have made a real difference to the lives of carers.

All workers who have been nominated will receive a certificate and the winners will be presented with their awards during Carers Week (13 - 19 June).

Please note nominations must be from carers only and the person you nominate must be a worker (not a young carer or other family member/friend).

The closing date for nominations is Wednesday 4th May.

Nomination forms are available from Sunderland Carers' Centre on (0191) 567 3232 or email
