Carers Week UK

Posted on 8th June 2020

Carers across the country are facing new challenges and hardships as a result of the coronavirus crisis. There are lots of citizens having to take on new caring roles for sick disabled and elderly people as a result of the pandemic

Unpaid carers need to be recognised in society for the work they are undertaking, respected for all they are doing, and provided with information, support and understanding they deserve.

So during Carers Week charites and organisations are coming together to ‘Help Make Caring Visible’ in 2020. Most of us don’t expect to become unpaid carers, but there is a 50:50 chance that any one of us could become a carer for someone close by the time we are 50 years old.

Advocacy Matters will be featuring stories about carers on our website, Twitter and Facebook this week to raise awareness of the vital work unpaid carers do to seek the recognition they deserve.
