Family Carers Ireland have called on the people of Cork to support them on their national fundraising and awareness day this Friday.

Staff, volunteers and family carers take to the streets to sell €2 Heart of Gold pins to raise vital funds for carers.

The money raised will help Family Carers Ireland continue to provide essential supports to carers, including wellbeing reviews, counselling, advocacy and emergency planning and peer support groups.

The supports provided by the charity have never been so important with a recent survey of almost 2,000 family carers finding that over two-thirds experience financial distress, almost one quarter are cutting back on essentials to make ends meet and nearly nine in ten feel the value of what they do is not recognised.
