The Trust is one of nine national partners of Carers Week 2012, being held on 18-24 June 2012. During this week, events and activities across the week will pay a tribute to unpaid carers. This year’s Carers Week theme is “In sickness and health” and aims to highlight the fact that carers’ health and safety is of paramount importance.
In order to help Carers Week 2012 create maximum impact, a survey is being held on Carers Week website to collect voices of carers. Carers Week 2012 Survey can be completed here.
Recent cuts to local services do have a knock on effect on the health and well-being of unpaid carers. It is for this reason, that recognition by professionals and by those who have any sort of impact on carers’ everyday lives, will make a massively positive difference.
The other charities who are jointly organising Carers Week with us are Age UK, Carers UK, Counsel & Care, Crossroads Care, Dementia UK, Macmillan Cancer Support, MS Society, and Parkinson's UK.
