Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II

8th September 22

Caring Together is greatly saddened by the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. We appreciate all the tremendous work she has done and service she gave to our country over many years. Our thoughts are with the Royal Family at this time.

We will continue to be operating our hubs and other support for carers due to the on-going needs of carers, and the people they care for.

The sad news of the passing of Her Majesty is affecting us all in different ways. This includes those of us who are carers, and who are cared for. As always, if your needs as a carer have changed remember you can contact us on 0345 241 0954 during our normal opening hours. Or email us at [email protected]. Our office will be closed on Monday 19 September.
