Carers: the backbone of our communities

pcs8906cropped1-239x248Carers are part of the backbone of our communities and the annual awards night held by the Carers’ Centre is a fabulous opportunity to applaud their selflessness, says Sirona chief executive Janet Rowse.

Sirona Care & Health, which provides specialist community health and adult social care across Bath and North East Somerset, South Gloucestershire and surrounding area, is the title sponsor of the Celebrating Carers event.

Janet said: “Our staff work day in day out supporting individuals and families but they do not do it alone. They are supported by carers, volunteers and other partners and all of these people working together really makes a difference to the lives of others.

“A carer can be of any age and the Carers’ Centre works closely with young people and these awards will also recognise them.

“Carers like volunteers are the unsung heroes in health and social care as they are the people who are supporting the individual when our teams aren’t; they are crucial and this event puts them centre stage where they deserve to be.

“This is a special occasion for a special group of people and Sirona is proud to be supporting it.”

We’re grateful for Sirona’s support both to carers and the Carers’ Centre and look forward to celebrating with them. There are still tickets available so if you would like to join us, please email info@banescarerscentre.org.uk or ring 01761 431488. We hope to see you there!
