Carers Week webchat with Esther Rantzen

With Carers Week fast approaching we are delighted to announce that the Princess Royal Trust for Carers have arranged a webchat for all carers with Esther Rantzen – next Wednesday, 9th June, from 7-8pm.
Esther has been in the public eye for many years, having first made her name in the BBC consumer programme – That’s Life! Innovative programmes such as Trouble in Mind (on mental health) and Childwatch followed, and Esther subsequently set up ChildLine, a free 24-hour counseling service for children and young people.
Esther has been a long-term supporter of Carers Week – she was the very first celebrity to support the new partnership formed in 2001 – having cared for her husband Desmond, until he died of coronary heart disease in 2000. Whatever your question for Esther, back in the news last month as an independent candidate in the General Election, we are sure it will be an interesting 60 minutes.
To take part in the webchat you need to first register with The Princess Royal Trust for Carers – the hosts for the event – at  Once you’ve registered, it is recommend that you visit the chat room to familiarise yourself with the surroundings. If you have any difficulties, please email
