Carers Week 2020
This Carers Week (8-14 June) we may be at home but our Carers’ Network is still active.
Many of our member carers are taking on more caring responsibilities for their relatives and friends who are disabled, ill or older who need support. And now, more than ever, it’s important that we make caring visible to highlight the challenges that the 6.5 million people caring, unpaid, across our nations are facing.
So this Carers Week we are raising our voices to let everyone know that carers deserve to be recognised for the vital contribution they make – and that we are there for each other during Carers Week and beyond.
Join us to help Make Caring Visible in 2020.
