Carers Week 2017

9 October 2017

This year National Carers Week is on from Sunday 15 to Saturday 21 October 2017.

Carers help people who have severe disability or medical conditions, or are frail aged.

Carers Week is a way of bringing everyone together to celebrate and recognise the role of carers. It also helps us raise awareness about our services and how they can reduce the financial burden placed on carers.

If you provide care for someone, go to payments for carers to find out what help is available to support your caring role.

Next steps

You can ask a general question and stay up to date with us through our social media accounts.
