This is Carers Week

by timpickstone on 12 June, 2019

This week is national Carers Week – an annual campaign to raise awareness of caring, highlight the challenges unpaid carers face and recognise the contribution they make to families and communities throughout the UK.

There are 6.5 million people in the UK who are carers. They will be looking after a family member or friend who has a disability, mental or physical illness or who needs extra help as they grow older.

More information on Carer’s Week nationally, including advice and resources here. More information on Carers Week in the Bury area here.
