Carers Week 2018 11-17th June – How you can get involved
This year, Age UK are one of eight national charities preparing to join forces to help the UK’s 6.5 million unpaid carers stay ‘Healthy and Connected’ by recognising the local support that can help them maintain good mental and physical health.
Caroline Dinenage MP, Minister of State for Care, said:
“Carers’ invaluable contribution deserves to be recognised and I thank them for all they do. That’s why we will soon publish our Carers’ Action Plan and why they will be a key part of our upcoming proposals to reform social care. I urge everyone to get involved with Carers Week, to celebrate these true unsung heroes and ensure they get the support and recognition they truly deserve.”
There are lots of different ways to get involved in Carers Week. From sharing information with colleagues and customers to handing out leaflets at your local GP’s surgery, we all have a role to play in helping carers stay Healthy and Connected.
