The theme for this years Carers Week is “Making Caring Visible”
Caring can be a hugely rewarding experience but carers often find it challenging to take care of their own wellbeing whilst caring, and find that their contribution to society is not recognised and celebrated. Its impact on all aspects of life, from relationships and health to finances and work, should not be underestimated. Caring without the right information and support can be tough.
That's why, this Carers Week, we're focusing on 'Making Caring Visible' to ensure that carers get the information and support they need from services and the wider public.
We hope you will take part in the activities, events and competitions that we have arranged this year and share your caring story with others. We would love carers and their supporters to use the #ICare on any social media posts during Carers Week.
