A brand new digital television show dedicated to carers across Suffolk has been officially launched.
Carers TV is the brainchild of Suffolk Carers Matter and will provide a platform for news, information and advice across the county.
The show, which was recorded on Tuesday at Glasswells in Bury St Edmunds included an interview with a family carer, Michelle Clark, who is the founder of the Lose the Label charity.
The charity aims to break down the stigma surrounding Down’s Syndrome.
Paul Glasswell, managing director of the family-run business, was also a guest on the show, which will be aired on the Suffolk Carers Matter website monthly.
The programme was hosted by TV and radio presenter Nick Pandolfi and Laura Watson from Suffolk Carers Matter and will be aired from Thursday July 19.
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.”
