Carers Week

Awareness events
Monday 7th June, 2021 to Sunday 13th June, 2021

About this event

Around 6.5 million people in the UK are carers, looking after a parent, partner, child or friend. A carer is someone who provides unpaid care and support to a family member or friend who has a disability, illness, mental health problem, or who needs extra help as they grow older.

Carers Week is an annual campaign to raise awareness of the challenges carers face and recognise the contribution they make to families and their communities. This will be the second year that the Carers Week campaign in Islington will take place online.
