Carer Support Wiltshire is running a series of virtual events and activities for this year's Carers Week. Running from 8-14 June, Carers Week shines a light on the thousands of unpaid carers there are in the UK. Across the UK today an estimated 6.5 million people or 1 in every 8 are carers and this includes many thousands who live in Wiltshire.
Wiltshire Council has postponed the renewal process for garden waste collection until 15 June, due to the pressure on council services because of COVID-19. Garden waste collections will continue, provided the council's contractor has sufficient staff to maintain service delivery.
Wiltshire Council has made an urgent call to hoteliers, B&Bs, and Airbnb providers to come forward to offer accommodation to house homeless people in Wiltshire during the coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis.
