We're supporting Carers Week 2017

 

12 June 2017

It's Carers Week (12- 18 June), a campaign to raise awareness of caring by highlighting the challenges carers face and recognising the contribution they make to families and communities throughout the UK.

The focus for Carers Week is on Building Carer Friendly Communities and places where local people and services support carers to look after their loved ones.

Many people don't identify themselves as carers and don't always know what support is available to them.

Are you a Carer? Do you know a Carer?

There is a wide range of support available for carers who feel their role is not understood or valued by the community.

74% of the public in the UK said that carers are not valued enough in society
