Carers Week 2021 Making Caring Visible and Valued
EveryDay Care & Support is delighted to be supporting Carers Week 2021. This is an annual campaign to raise awareness of caring, highlight the challenges unpaid carers face and recognise the contribution they make to families and communities throughout the UK. It also helps people who don’t think of themselves as having caring responsibilities to identify as carers and access much-needed support.
Save the date for this year’s Carers Week, which is taking place from 7 – 13 June with the theme Make Caring Visible and Valued.
The Impact of Carers
Carers Week is the ideal time to focus on the impact that caring can have. Though caring can be rewarding, it’s important that carers get the support they need to stop them putting off their own health needs or becoming isolated.
The campaign will be focusing on the importance of not only recognising carers, but also valuing them for the vital contribution they make – not just during the past year, but every day.
Carers Week is brought to life by the individuals, groups and organisations taking action and running activities throughout the UK. These activities reach carers, many of whom don’t know that help is available.
They support carers who need a boost to keep going. They enable carers to share their experience of caring both before and after the coronavirus outbreak, and to connect to support and information they might not know exists.
This year it is more important than ever for us all to come together and show our support for carers.
