It’s nearly time for Carers Day 2023!

We are very excited and looking forward to celebrating Carers Day in India, Nepal, and Bangladesh on Thursday 19th October 2023.

On Carers Day, our local charity partners, the carers they support and their communities, come out in force to raise awareness of unpaid carers and the issues and challenges they face, as well as the massive contribution they make to society. Last year over 10,000 people came together to mark the day. Find out more about last year's event here.

The Theme Is…

We are delighted to share the theme for this year, which we believe deeply resonates with all the unpaid carers we support and the partner organisations we work with. The theme for this year's Carers Day is: ‘Let's Recognise and Support Carers’.

Alongside our local charity partners, we are committed to supporting and celebrating the invaluable contributions of carers in their communities.

Carers play a pivotal role in our society, dedicating their time and energy to provide care and support to loved ones who need it most. It is crucial that we acknowledge their remarkable efforts and offer them the support they need.

This year's theme encourages us all to:

  • Recognise: Take a moment to acknowledge and appreciate the tireless efforts of carers.
  • Support: Explore ways in which we can offer tangible support to carers. This might include offering emotional support, providing respite care, or advocating for policies that enhance carers’ well-being.

Recognising and supporting carers enables us to create a more inclusive society. This year Carers Day provides an excellent opportunity for us to raise awareness, engage in meaningful discussions, and take concrete actions to improve the lives of carers.
