Carers Week June 2024

'Putting Carers on the Map'

10th - 14th 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.

The campaign is brought to life by thousands of individuals and organisations who come together to provide support for carers, run activities, highlight the vital role carers play in our communities and draw attention to just how important caring is.

 

We will be holding various events throughout the week - check out the poster on the right!

You can book onto any of these events by calling us on 01254 387444

Carers Active April -
every month!
(with Carers UK)

This UK wide initiative is aimed at promoting the health and wellbeing of carers through physical activity. Getting active is so important for everybody's health, but especially for carers, many of whom spend more time looking after others than themselves.

You can get active any month of the year with the below weekly walks in Burnley and Hyndburn.
