We hope you all enjoyed Carers Week, we certainly did!!!

As you know Carers Week 2013 took place from Monday 10th to Sunday 16th June and was a UK-wide awareness campaign, aiming to improve the lives of carers and the people they care for and to show support for the invaluable work carers do every day of the year.

Home Care Direct are proud to say we registered and thoroughly enjoyed taking part in Carers Week 2013. Since we’re a national organisation employing almost 400 carers on behalf of people all over the country, we”ve had to think slightly differently and come up with national events we could hold.

So we held a We Care Raffle we put all Home Care Direct carer names in a hat and the first three names drawn out won our We Care prizes, first prize was a £50 Red Letter Day voucher and pamper hamper and second and third prizes were pamper hampers, full of lovely luxury food items.

Roger Adams, managing director of Home Care Direct did the prize draw and then rang the lucky winners to let them know these In the second half of the year horoscope for virgowill have problems with relatives that may be reflected in different dimensions. would be winging their way to them, it was a lovely event and congratulations to Paul, Yvonne and Joe on winning the We Care Raffle.

We also held our first webinar with an online question and answer session with Home Care Direct directors  Roger Adams and Gabrielle Clay with support from the business development team.  This went really well and was very interesting for all involved.  We”re hoping to get a transcript of the webinar shortly so if you weren”t able to join us and would like a copy please get it touch with us here.

We are still running the design a T-Shirt competition where we”ve asked all our clients to draw a picture that embodies how important the work of their carers is to them. The winning design will then be made into a T-shirt and presented to them.  We”ve had a great response to this already with lots of wonderful designs coming in.  The closing date for designs is Friday 21st of June so there is still time to send yours in, so why not get creative and have a bit of fun.  We”ll be sharing the designs from next week here.
