Carers Week – 8-14 June 2020

posted in: Carers Events, News

Carers Week (8-14 June) 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, people across the country are continuing to face new challenges as a result of the coronavirus outbreak. Many people are taking on more caring responsibilities for their relatives and friends who are disabled, ill or older and who need support.

Carers groups in Slough have put together events during this week. Take some time out from your caring responsibilities and enjoy some fun and laughter.

Slough Carers Support is a Slough CVS project.
