Carers Week – 8 – 14 June

Posted on June 8th, 2020


Making Carers Visible – Carers Week 2020

When you’re caring for someone, it is really important to ensure that you look after yourself too. This is particularly important at the moment when some people are increasing the amount of unpaid care they provide. 

Caring can be very rewarding, but without the right support it can have a negative impact on your health, career, finances and relationships. 

This year, you may have found that your caring role has become more challenging, or you may have taken on new caring responsibilities.

Carers Week

Carers Week was established by Carers UK over 25 years ago.  It is an annual campaign to raise awareness of caring, offer support to carers and highlight the challenges they’re facing.

This year, Carers Week is more important than ever. Caring can be hugely rewarding but it can also have an impact on all aspects of your life. Looking after someone without the right information and support can be tough.  Carers Week 2020 is brought to you by six charities working together to raise awareness of caring. Led by Carers UK, these charities are
Age UK, Carers Trust, Motor Neurone Disease (MND) Association, Oxfam GB and Rethink Mental Illness.

You can find information about these charities at the end of this booklet – Information Leaflet
