Today marks the start of Carers Week – a week for all the millions of carers who look after those who require their care and attention. It is a day to raise awareness of the support carers can receive and to create a positive awareness- to recognise carers effort and the contribution they make to families and communities throughout the UK.
The annual campaign is brought to life by thousands of individuals and organisations who come together to show their support by running activities, highlighting the role carers play in our communities and simply showcasing just how important caring is.
You can get involved by visiting the Carers Week website, where there are resources for raising awareness and ideas for what you can do for carers this week. Find the resource pack here.
