National Carers Week

12 Jun 2019

10th - 16th June 2019

Caring can be a hugely rewarding experience but carers often find it challenging to take care of their own wellbeing whilst caring. Its impact on all aspects of life from relationships and health to finances and work should not be underestimated. Caring without the right information and support can be tough.

This Carers Week, we're coming together to help carers get connected. 

There are 6.5 million people in the UK who are carers. They will be looking after a family member or friend who has a disability, mental or physical illness, or who needs extra help as they grow older.

Below are links to local and national information and organisations providing a range of relevant information, advice and support to assist carers in looking after themselves and their caring role:
