Carers Week 2024: Trafford Carers Centre’s “The Carers Quest”

Trafford Carers Centre took this year’s Carers Week theme, “Putting Carers on the Map,” to a new level by creating ‘The Carers Quest.’ This treasure hunt around Trafford allowed carers and the people they care for to visit different organisations and businesses to collect stamps, which were then converted into points. In total, there were 42 different stamp locations around Trafford, with 26 different organisations and businesses participating as stamp collection points.

The School Street has been a great success thanks to a year of tireless work by the amazing group of volunteers, who have been out marshalling the road in all weathers.

For the 40th anniversary of Volunteers Week the Trafford Community Volunteer Network on behalf of the Collective asked volunteers across our borough to tell them what volunteering means to them – and what they’d say to anyone thinking of volunteering.
