Carers' Week 2021 will be taking place from 7th to 13th June
Carers Week is an annual campaign to raise awareness of caring, highlight the challenges unpaid carers face and recognise the contribution they make to families and communities throughout the UK. It also helps people who don’t think of themselves as having caring responsibilities to identify as carers and access much-needed support.
Caring can be a hugely rewarding experience but carers often find it challenging to take care of their own wellbeing whilst caring, and find that their contribution to society is not recognised and celebrated. Its impact on all aspects of life, from relationships and health to finances and work, should not be underestimated. Caring without the right information and support can be tough.
That's why, this Carers Week, the focus is on 'Making Caring Visible' to ensure that carers get the information and support they need from services and the wider public.
Details about events will be uploaded soon.
