This week is Carers Week! This is the annual campaign to raise awareness of the challenges that carers face and recognise how they contribute to friends, families, and communities. Events and activities will be taking place throughout the UK across the week.
6.5 million people in the UK are carers – this includes anyone caring for a family member or friend who has a disability, mental or physical illness or who needs extra help as they grow older. Join in the conversation online using #carersweek on social media.
