Donegal Local Development Company Ltd. is recognising the important role of carers in our county by hosting a FREE Caring for Carers event for unpaid carers.

Caring for Carers will be held in An Chúirt Hotel, Gweedore, on Tuesday June 10th.

The event aims to provide carers with the opportunity to share their experiences and get to know other carers. Key speaker Shane Martin will be offering motivational tips, followed by lunch, and a choice of therapies to relax and unwind.

Shane aligns himself to the school of Positive Psychology which focuses on our strengths; he is passionate about helping us prepare mentally and develop strategies for the inevitable crises that are part of life’s journey, so we can be happier, healthier, and more resilient.
