Grant Awards Available from Berkshire Carers Service
Berkshire Carers Service is inviting charities and community groups across Berkshire who support carers to apply for grant funding.
Awards are available to fund projects and activities that will make a positive difference to the lives of carers.
To date, Berkshire Carers Service has awarded funding to Younger People With Dementia to provide a specialist Admiral Nurse in East Berkshire and to run a support group. The Berks, Bucks and Oxon Wildlife Trust have been given a grant to continue their Nature Memories Café at Thatcham for people living with dementia and their carers.
Deborah Wilson, chair of Trustees, said that while Berkshire Carers Service no longer provides direct services to carers its Trustees are committed to ensuring its funds are used in a way that is as effective and full of impact on carers as possible.
She said: “We aim to make a positive difference to the lives of carers through our grant awards and positively welcome applications from organisations whose work addresses the needs of carers.”
