Carers Week 8th to 14th June 2020

Carers Week is an annual awareness campaign to celebrate and recognise the vital contribution made by the UK’s 6.5 million carers. On behalf of Sid Valley Practice – THANK YOU

Carers Week is brought to life by individuals, groups and organisations coming together from around the UK. This year, people across the country are continuing to face new challenges as a result of the coronavirus outbreak. Many people and current carers are taking on more caring responsibilities for their relatives and friends who are disabled, ill or older who need support. And now, more than ever, it’s important that we highlight the challenges that the 6.5 million people caring, unpaid, across our nations are facing.

So let’s raise our voices and let everyone know that carers deserve to be recognised for the vital contribution they make – and that we are there for each other during Carers Week and beyond. Let’s Make Caring Visible in 2020.Find out more about what is going on here.
