A Yorkshire charity is opening a “pop up” shop to showcase the skills of the growing number of carers across Bradford and Airedale.
The Carers’ Resource hope the initiative will appeal to those unpaid carers who make products in their spare time, helping them to earn some extra money or supporting them in setting up their own small business.
The doors to the “pop up” shop on Market Street, Bradford, will be open from March 3 to 8.
Stella Elson, locality and service manager for The Carers’ Resource in Bradford, said:
“We know from the work we do with thousands of carers across the district that there is a wide pool of talent out there.
“This is the first time we have opened a ‘pop up’ shop to capture this range of skills in one place and we hope it will be supported not just by carers, but by shoppers as well.”
A meeting is being held between 10.30am and noon on Thursday (January 16) at the charity’s offices at Unit 15, Park View Court, St Paul’s Road, Shipley, where all carers who are interested in being part of the venture are invited to attend.
The charity is also looking for helpers keen to improve skills around customer service and merchandising.
