Monday 11 June will mark the first day of Carers Week 2018, bringing an opportunity for everyone to raise awareness of the different services on offer in Warwickshire to help make carers’ lives a little bit easier. Carers Week is about building communities which support carers to look after their loved ones whilst recognising that they are individuals with health and wellbeing needs of their own.
A carer is anyone who regularly provides unpaid help to someone who could not cope without them. Unfortunately, many people do not realise that they are carers, while many who do realise are unaware that there is support available for them.
Warwickshire County Council, in partnership with Warwickshire Carer Wellbeing Service, will promote Carers Week locally, with themed news and activities taking place throughout the week. View schedule of local events
Please make a pledge of how you can support carers in your local community or how you as a carer will look after your health and wellbeing https://www.carersweek.org/
