This week is dedicated to you!
Carers Week is an annual campaign to raise awareness of caring, highlight the challenges you face and recognise the contribution you all make to your families and communities every day.
We have lots of fun activities and events planned online so please get in touch to find out how to join in. We need your help to Make Caring Visible.
The Carers Week research report, released today, shows that 4.5 million people in the UK have become unpaid carers in a matter of weeks.
The six charities supporting Carers Week - Carers UK, Age UK, Carers Trust, Motor Neurone Disease Association, Oxfam GB and Rethink Mental Illness – are calling on the UK Government to recognise and raise awareness of the role unpaid carers are playing during the pandemic and ensure they are supported through it, and beyond.
