TV show dedicated for carers across Suffolk launches at Glasswells

A brand new digital television dedicated to carers across Suffolk has been officially launched.

Carers TV is the brainchild of Suffolk Carers Matter to provide a platform for news, information and advice across the county.

The show, which was recorded on Tuesday at Glasswells, included an interview with a family carer, Michelle Clark – the founder of the Lose the Label charity which aims to break down the stigma around Down’s Syndrome.

Paul Glasswell, managing director of the renowned family-run business, was also a guest on the show as well as a ‘Just Ask’ section giving advice and tips and a ‘Quick Food for Carers’ segment will also be regular features of the monthly show, which will be aired on the Suffolk Carers Matter website.

It was hosted by TV and radio presenter Nick Pandolfi and Laura Watson from Suffolk Carers Matter and will be aired from Thursday 19th July.

Simon Brown, founder of Suffolk Carers Matter, said: “We are here to provide support to families and parent carers and be a voice for them – and Carers TV is an extension of that.

“We wanted to provide a digital show where carers could relax or escape with features and interviews that are interesting for them.

“If carers have a question, a problem or a challenge, however big or small, we want them to ‘Just Ask’ through the link on our website.

“Suffolk Carers Matter is a place where carers throughout the county can go for help, support, information and guidance. Carers do an incredible job but who is caring for the carers? We want them to know they are not alone.”

Paul Glasswell, manager of Glasswells, said: “We were delighted to host the launch of Carers TV in association with Suffolk Carers Matter.”

The show will be aired on Suffolk Carers Matter’s website – www.suffolkcarersmatter.org.uk.
