Carers Week 2021


Carers Week 7 to 13 June ‘Make Carers Visible and Valued.’

Carers Week is a national annual campaign to raise awareness of caring, highlight the challenges unpaid carers face and recognise the contribution you make to society. 

The theme for this year’s event 7 to 13 June, is ‘Make Carers Visible and Valued.’ We are bringing the campaign to life by running a series of events and activities.
