The theme for this year’s week is ’Making Caring Visible’ to ensure that carers get the information and support they need from services and the wider public.
Unpaid carers are currently dealing with more challenges than ever before, with the pandemic having done a lot to hide carers, confining them to their homes more and making them less visible.
This makes it more important than ever that we come together to recognise the role played by unpaid carers, ensuring they are valued and well-supported.
During the week Carers Network will run a virtual programme of activities for local carers.
