Impetus Dance has committed to carers by recognising the vital support that unpaid carers provide their loved ones. Director Louise Bowman stated that "We understand the vital role that unpaid carers provide in Wales so with this commitment we as an organisation will ensure that all our staff and volunteers have undertaken their Carers Awareness training with The Carers Trust South East Wales. This will enable us to recognise, listen and support our carers" We have now taken on a Volunteer Carers Support Officer who will start in the new year.
