Carers Week 2017

From 12th – 18th June is Carers week which is an annual campaign to raise awareness of carers and the challenges they face. It aims to draw attention to the importance of carers to the lives of people across the country and also recognise the contribution that they make to families and communities.

This year, the campaign is focussing on Building Carer Friendly Communities, allowing carers to be supported in looking after their loved ones, while recognising that they are also individuals with needs of their own.

There is a range of events happening up and down the country this week – for more information or to get involved, please go to http://www.carersweek.org/.
