Carers Week 2016

Building Carer Friendly Communities

Carer Friendly Communities are places where carers feel supported to look after their family or friends, and recognised as individuals with needs of their own.

Carers Week (6 – 12 June 2016) is an annual campaign to raise awareness of caring, highlight the challenges that carers face and recognise the contribution they make to families and communities throughout the UK.

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.

Get involved now by planning your own activities and events to make Carers Week count.  Full details about events and activities we are planning for this year’s Carers Week are now available!


 

Up and down the UK there are 6.5 million people caring unpaid for an ill, frail or disabled family member or friend.  These people are called Carers but they would probably say that they are just being a husband, a mum, a son  or a good neighbour.

If you know a Carer please let them know about Herefordshire Carers Support!  We support Carers to look after their loved ones while recognising that they are individuals with needs of their own and need to look after themselves.
