Blackpool Carers currently produce, Caring Times, a triannual 28 page (minimum), full colour, glossy magazine, which is full of interesting articles for carers, along with information and support.
The print run for each issue is a minimum of 9,000 copies. The magazine is posted out to over 4,500 carers on our database, 2,000 copies are hand delivered by our volunteers to health and social care professionals, GP surgeries, libraries, schools, partner organisations and numerous local businesses. The magazine is also circulated via Mail Chimp bulletin and by email throughout the country to over 1,500 supporters.
We have taken the decision to allow a small amount of advertising in the the magazine and only include advertisements which are relevant to carers and their needs. The aim of the advertising is to purely cover costs, so we can distribute widely in order to attract those carers who do not currently see themselves in this role. In this way, we can widen our reach in order to help those most in need.
