Carers Week is 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. It also helps people who don’t think of themselves as having caring responsibilities to identify as carers and access much-needed support.
This Carers Week, we’re recognising that now, more than ever before, it’s time for us to come together and help Make Caring Visible. Everyone has a part to play in making sure these carers are seen, heard, and understood; and helping them to get the support they need to care. Making Caring Visible will help carers get the information and support they need – and everyone can get involved.
Organisations will be pledging their support for Carers Week and beyond. Virtual activities are being organised and listed on the Carers Week site, bringing carers together across the UK. And everyone can Add Their Voice to our call: that together, we can help Make Caring Visible.
