Putting Carers on the map

Carers Week is an annual campaign to raise awareness of unpaid carers, highlight the challenges they face and acknowledge the difference they make to families and communities.

This Carers Week we will be hosting a series of events to raise awareness of unpaid carers and shout about the free support and resources available in York.

We want local carers to know that ‘We see you’ and we are here for you if / when you need us. Please come along to one or more of our events and talk to a Carer Support Worker and other local carers with shared experiences.

‘We see you’ involves the metaphorical use of mirrors to symbolise reflection, recognition and the unseen efforts of carers.

You can collect a ‘mirror’ from local libraries (Explore Centres) in York, or any Carers Week event, to write a word, phrase or drawing on it, and post it back to us in one of the boxes provided. The findings will be used to create a piece of art which we will reveal at our AGM.

We will share more details in our ebulletins and on social media but please save the date and get involved.
