Carers Week 2024

Carers Week 2024

Carers Week (10 – 16 June) is an annual campaign to raise awareness of caring, highlight the challenges unpaid carers face and recognise the contribution they make to families and communities throughout the UK.

It also helps people who don’t think of themselves as having caring responsibilities to identify as carers and access much-needed support.

This year’s theme for Carers Week is ‘Putting carers on the map’.


Get Involved

Our activities calendar is jam-packed this Carers Week. Every activity offers a chance for carers to talk to a support worker and other local people that live in similar circumstances, as well as to find out more about our work.

Check out our activities calendar to find an activity that’s right for you.
