Carers Week is an annual event run by a consortium of national charities, including the Carers Trust, Carers UK, Age UK, Macmillan, MS Society and MNDA.

The week is dedicated to raising awareness about carers, the issues that they face, and helping research what support they need. Thousands of people across the country use this time to find and assist carers in their local communities.

This year, Carers Week will be focussing on keeping carers healthy and connected. Carers, especially those who care full time, often tell us that they find it difficult to do this, as it is hard to maintain friendships, exercise or get time to themselves. Talk to one of our Carer Advisors to consider ways to help your health and wellbeing.

Here’s what you can get involved in:
