Swansea Carers were chosen by the ‘Social Flag Project’ at Swansea’s Guildhall, to promote our free services for carers in Swansea. We want to give a big thank you to the Swansea Flag Project ‘Mr Flag’ and Swansea City Council for allowing us to fly the flag for carers.
Carers Week 2017
Swansea Carers Centre have celebrated Carers Week. The day offered a Bollywood dance Class, Holistic Therapies, and the Carers Choir.
Carers also had the opportunity to join in workshops including, jewellery making, bag designing and willow making. A big thank you for those who took part and attended our Carers Week. #BigCelebration.
We are delighted to have been chosen by the Social Flag project to have our flag flown from The Guildhall Rotunda Flagpole during Carers Week.
The Social Flag Project® is a collaboration between Swansea’s flag brand Flags by MrFlag.com and City & County of Swansea in association with the South Wales Evening Post. Representatives of these organisations and Swansea Carers Centre will all be in attendance on the 12th, and we hope you will consider joining us. This simple flag-raising event will take place outside on the Guildhall Rotunda and is an opportunity to be part of an innovative pilot aimed at benefiting local charities, good causes and social enterprises by using existing public facilities without additional cost to rate payers.
The South Wales Evening Post will be taking photos for a piece scheduled to be published in the following days. In addition we’ll have our own photographer taking photos and vox-pops which we’ll be using on our own website and social media platforms throughout the year.
Here’s our schedule for the day:
