Carers Week 2022 – making caring visible, valued and supported

29th April 22

Carers Week 2022 is on the way from 6 to 12 June. The week 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.

The theme for Carers Week 2022 is ‘Make caring visible, valued and supported’. The aim is that people looking after family members or friends, and the challenges of caring should be recognised in all areas of life, caring should be valued and respected by everyone in our society, and carers should have access to the information and support they need, where and when they need it.

Caring Together events for Carers Week

To show our support for carers, we have events and activities planned for the lead up to/and during Carers Week. With half term the week before Carers Week look out for a few more events on the way in the days before Carers Week for young carers.

Contacting carers

We will be writing to carers who we have been in contact with to thank them for all they have done, look at what comes next for carers as we come out of the measures in place due to the coronavirus pandemic and share more information about opportunities for them and how they can also help us do more to support carers.

Over the coming weeks we will be giving more details on how Caring Together will be marking Carers Week and how you can get involved.
