What is Carers Week?

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

This year’s Carers Week takes place from 7-13 June and the theme is ‘Making Carers Visible and Valued’.

What is Carers’ Resource doing for Carers Week in 2021?

Carers Week is brought to life by the individuals and organisations that come together to organise activities and events throughout the UK, drawing attention to just how important caring is.

The Difference We Make 2020-21

As well as the events below we’ve also published our most recent “impact report” The Difference We Make 2020-21 this week, which this year is a video – a different kind of year needed a different kind of report!

Please note all Carers Week events may be subject to change depending on government restrictions.
