Carers Week 2018

Individuals and groups all over the UK are organising events to raise awareness for Carers Week 2018.

Around 6.5 million people in the UK are carers, looking after a parent, partner, child or friend. Carers Week is an annual campaign to raise awareness of caring, highlight the challenges carers face and recognise the contribution they make to families and communities throughout the UK.

When you are caring for a family member, you may reduce the priority of your own needs. The impact on your own health and wellbeing can be significant. This year Carers Week is highlighting how Carers can stay Healthy and Connected.

Events being held include coffee mornings, health and wellbeing events and information events, giving Carers the opportunity to meet with others and learn more about how they can look after themselves whilst caring.
