The countdown to Carers Week 2022 (6th -12th June) is on and there are workshops, social events, information sessions, that will appeal to you whether you are a young carer, adult carer, professional or involved in research.

The week with the theme ‘Make caring visible, valued and supported’ is an annual campaign to raise awareness of caring, highlight the challenges unpaid carers of all ages face and recognise the contribution they make to families and communities.

We want to see people that look after family member or friends, and the challenges they face recognised in all areas of life, their caring role valued and respected by everyone in our society, and they are able to access the information and support they need, where and when they need it.
