CARERS WEEK 2020: Making Care Visible

“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 don’t think of themselves as having caring responsibilities to identify as carers and access much-needed support”.

Are you a carer? (Young Carers please click here)

Do you look after someone who is ill, frail, disabled or mentally ill? If so, you are a carer. A carer is anyone, including children and adults who look after a family member, partner or friend who needs help and cannot cope without your support. The care given is unpaid.

If you think you are a carer please contact the surgery for more information regarding the help available to you.
