Carers Week 2021 - Monday 7th June to Friday 11th June.


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.

This year we are coming together to Make Caring Visible and Valued.

The campaign is brought to life by thousands of individuals and organisations who come together to provide support for carers, run activities, highlight the vital role carers play in our communities and draw attention to just how important caring is.

At Age UK Leicester Shire & Rutland we are running activities from Monday 7th June 2021 until Friday 11th June 2021. Click on the "Read More" link below for further details ...
