Carers Week is an annual national campaign to raise awareness of caring, highlight the challenges carers face and celebrate the enormous contribution carers make throughout the UK.
Carers Week 2018 will be taking place from 11th17th June and we are organising a range of activities and awareness-raising events across Devon. The theme of Carers Week this year is ‘helping carers stay healthy and connected’.
As a carer, you will know only too well that your own health and well-being is often neglected as you put all your energy into your caring role. This Carers Week we are providing information stalls and events across the county, focusing on looking after your physical and mental health. We will also be working with some of our GP practices and hospitals to try and encourage the identification of more carers and highlight the impact of caring.
