SUPPORT: Carers’ Week

The week of 12-18 June is Carers’ Week

Eight major charities have combined forces to get communities across the UK involved, encouraging people to register events and pledge support for Carers Week 2017 (12-18 June) – a national awareness week that celebrates and recognises the vital contribution made by the 6.5 million people across the UK who currently provide unpaid care for a disabled, ill or older family member or friend.

Visit the Carers’ Week website for lots more info and ideas for getting involved –  http://www.carersweek.org/

This year we’re focusing on building communities which support carers to look after their loved ones well, while recognising that they are individuals with needs of their own.
