Carers Week this year looks at all the ways carers can be supported to stay healthy and connected. The aim is to build communities which support carers to look after their loved ones well, while recognising that they are individuals with health and wellbeing needs of their own.

There are many events taking place during the week. Find an event near you!

Carers Week is about supporting unpaid carers, but there are many paid jobs in care which could give you the opportunity to support others.
