Carers Week 2017

Monday 12 to Sunday 18 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. 

For Carers Week 2017, we focused on building Carer Friendly Communities, where we feel valued as carers. Valued because we get the support we need to look after our loved ones. And valued because we are respected and recognised as individuals with needs of our own.

To launch the week, we released a research report which looks at how the UK public feels about caring and carers.

Carers Week 2017 took place from Monday 12 to Sunday 18 June 2017.

Carers Week 2018 will be from Monday 11 to 17 June 2018. 

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. For 2017 over 1300 events or activities were planned over Carers Week.
