Carers Week is a national campaign that happens every year to raise awareness of caring; highlighting the challenges unpaid Carers face and recognising the contribution they make to families and communities every day.

Carers Week will this year be taking place from 6th to 12th June 2022. All of the activities featured in the calendar below are free for unpaid Carers.

We have put together this special Carers Week calendar (see below) for you; a chance to make you aware of all the free activities taking place for you this June. We hope that you will join us in celebrating all that you do for families and communities in your area.
