During the Covid 19 pandemic thousands of people have been shielding at home because of underlying health conditions. Many of those are also being supported by an unpaid carer; someone who cares, unpaid, for a friend or family member who, due to a lifelong condition, illness, disability, serious injury, a mental health condition or an addiction, cannot cope without their support.
Being an unpaid carer at this time can be challenging. Many of the volunteers at Mecoco are unpaid carers themselves, so we understand and we wanted to let all the unpaid carers in Scotland know that we care about what they are doing.
We have received funding from the Scottish Government Wellbeing Fund to make up and send out 350 gift boxes to unpaid carers across Scotland. The boxes are filled with goodies from Scottish social enterprises and small businesses.
Anyone can nominate an unpaid carer who they think would like to receive a We Care box. Just complete the form below and we'll do all the rest.
We'll only send one box per household. We know that a carer may be nominated by more than one person so we'll check every nomination to make sure.
NOMINATIONS HAVE BEEN CLOSED AS WE HAVE ALLOCATED ALL 350 BOXES. wE'D LIKE TO THANK ALL THE CONTRIBUTING COMPANIES AND THOSE WHO NOMINATED CARERS.
iF YOU HAVE RECEIVED A BOX PLEASE DO LEAVE FEEDBACK HERE.
We Care boxes are a collaboration between these 8 businesses and the Scottish Government WellBeing Fund.
