Her Royal Highness The Princess Royal visited Sefton Carers Centre in Waterloo to mark the organisation’s 30th Anniversary.

As well as touring the centre, the Princess Royal met some of the key people involved with Sefton Cares as well as some of the unpaid carers themselves.

The visit highlighted the work carried out by Sefton Carers Centre over the past 30 years and emphasised the organisation's ongoing commitment to enhancing the well-being of carers to care for a family member, friend, or neighbour.


Vicky Keeley CEO of Sefton Carers Centre said: “It has been a testament to the significant work Her Royal Highness The Princess Royal dedicates to unpaid carers across the country as President of the Carers Trust.

“We are honoured that Her Royal Highness The Princess Royal, has taken the time to return 30 years on from opening the centre in 1994.”

Three in five can expect to become a carer

Although three in five of us can expect to become a carer in our lifetime, many people do not recognise themselves as carers helping someone close to them. AS a result, many people struggle on without being aware of their rights and support available to them as a carer.

Sefton Carers Centre offers a wide range of support services for unpaid carers in Sefton, from the age of 5 and through adulthood.
