Carers Week is being celebrated in the UK this year from June 6th-12th. The week-long event is an annual campaign to raise awareness of caring, highlight the challenges that carers face and recognise the contribution they make to families and communities throughout the UK.
The campaign is brought to life by individuals and organisations who come together to organise activities and events throughout the UK, drawing attention to just how important caring is. The organisers ask supporters to make a pledge to show their commitment to carers and the vital role they play.
At Carers Worldwide, we are pledging our support for building Carer Friendly Communities both in the UK and in the countries where we work. Over the last year, we have supported four of our partner organisations to celebrate local Carers Days in India and Nepal. These are set to become annual events, as recognition and commitment grows.
To make our own pledge, please visit the Carers Week website.
