A year of carer content

This week marked one whole year of Mobilise daily emails. And it's no coincidence that our daily emails started with the announcement of the first lockdown! We hope that our daily dose of carer support to your inbox, has been a source of comfort and a constant, in what has been a turbulent time.

We've shared all sorts of content with our emails - all inspired by our carers' community. From wellbeing to Covid news, from carers' stories to carers rights - and everything in between.

We hope you've used our emails as an excuse to pop the kettle on and take 5 minutes to yourself.

And you've probably noticed something about our content. We think the greatest source of support for carers - is from other carers. And we're very grateful to have such a fantastic community sharing their knowledge, insights, wisdom and empathy. Which we package up into the content we can share far and wide, to benefit of as many carers as possible.

So today, to mark our one year anniversary, we're sharing some of our most impactful pieces of content from the last year - just in case you missed any! So pop that kettle on and take your pick!
