Carers Week Events- 6-12 June 2022

posted in: Events, News

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 do not think of themselves as having caring responsibilities to identify as carers and access much-needed support.

To mark National Carers Week (Monday 6 June to Sunday 12 June), Slough Carers Support, Slough Special Voices, Cippenham Carers Group, Slough Crossroads, and local community groups have teamed up, to organise a programme of events and activities for carers in the borough to take some time out and enjoy.
