Carers Week 8–14 June 2020

Making Caring Visible

We’re one of six organisations that joined together to make Carers Week happen in 2020.

Carers Week is brought to life by individuals, groups and organisations coming together from around the UK. This year, people across the country are continuing to face new challenges as a result of the Coronavirus outbreak. Many people and current carers are taking on more caring responsibilities for their relatives and friends who are disabled, ill or older who need support. 

This year, Carers Week  highlighted the challenges that carers across our nations are facing. So, we raised our voices and let everyone know that carers deserve to be recognised for the vital contribution they make – and that we are there for each other during Carers Week and beyond. Let's Make Caring Visible in 2020.
