Carers Week

Carers week logo

Carers First is supporting #CarersWeek (external link).

From 10 to 19 June 2024, carers will be recognised and celebrated as we mark the annual campaign.

The theme this year is 'putting carers on the map'. 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. 

A staggering 82% of carers surveyed by Carers UK said the impact of caring on their physical and mental health would be a challenge over the coming year, with nearly 60% adding that being valued as a carer would improve their wellbeing.

While we work tirelessly to continue to raise the profile of carers and the invaluable support that they provide, we invite you to share with your networks the events and activities we have taking place over Carers Week. These events are for all carers in the borough of Haringey and are aiming to highlight the importance of carers looking after their own wellbeing.
