Carers Week 2016

Monday 6 to Sunday 12 June

Carers Week logoCarers 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.

Carers Week 2016 will take place from Monday 6 to Sunday 12 June 2016. This year we're focusing on building Carer Friendly Communities, which support carers to look after their loved ones well, while recognising that they are individuals with needs of their own.

The campaign is brought to life by the individuals and organisations who come together to organise activities and events throughout the UK, drawing attention to just how important caring is.  

Get involved now by pledging your support, helping us to build Carer Friendly Communities and planning your own activities and events to make Carers Week count.  

Help us build Carer Friendly Communities

The Carers Week Carers Checklist sets out practical steps every part of the community can take to be carer friendly - to help you feel supported as a carer and recognised as an individual with needs of your own.

We're asking people to RECOMMEND organisations, services and employers who are already carer friendly and INVITE other organisations to use our checklist to COMMIT to becoming carer friendly.
