National Carers Week is running from 7th – 13th June and is a great time to shout about how you support the staff that are juggling work and caring.
Carers Week 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.

They also have some new upcoming activities:
- The Male Carer Support Program kicks off in June with a Woodland Experience Session. Find out more here.
- The new LGBTQI+ Carers session also kicks off next month. Find out more here.
