About this event

Around 6.5 million people in the UK are carers, looking after a parent, partner, child or friend. A carer is someone who provides unpaid care and support to a family member or friend who has a disability, illness, mental health problem or who needs extra help as they grow older.

Carers Week is an annual campaign to raise awareness of the challenges carers face and recognise the contribution they make to families and their communities.
