Request for volunteer Carers

Request to support volunteer recruitment campaign for the Carers Sitting Service

I am writing as the co-ordinator for the Carers Sitting Service which is provided by Northamptonshire Carers, a local registered charity.

There are around 6.4 million people in the UK providing unpaid care for ill or disabled loved ones. In Northamptonshire the number of adult carers has increased by 18%, one of the biggest increases in the country, to 69,498 since 2001.This is an issue that will touch everyone's life at some point. With this in mind the service I run now needs to recruit more volunteers to meet demand locally.
