Carers Week 6th - 12th June 2022 Posted on 30 May 2022

  

 

 

 

Are you an unpaid carer?

 

An unpaid Carer is someone who looks after a family member or a friend who could not cope without their support.  The person they care for could have a disability, illness, mental health condition or may need extra help as they grow older. 

Carers Week is an annual & national campaign to raise awareness of caring, highlight the challenges unpaid carers face & recognise the contribution they make to families & communities throughout the UK.

 

It also helps people who don't think of themselves as having caring responsibilities to identify as carers & access much-needed support

Emotional support, listening ear, information & guidance around your caring role, access or signposting to other organisations, services near you & more can be found by contacting Northamptonshire Carers:-
