its challenges and, most importantly, celebrate carers and take action to improve their lives. Last year’s campaign made a big impact: 1,346 organisations and 973 individuals took part in the campaign and 5,000 events were organised.
Carers Week 2016 is only 7 weeks away (6 -12 June). This year we want to reach out to even more carers and we hope that you will get involved. If you're planning to hold an event or activity, please add it to our online Carers Week map so we can build momentum and make some noise. Once your event is on the map, we will send you an email with a link to order your free event pack. You can also continue to help us build Carer Friendly Communities, brick by brick, by recommending organisations which are already carer friendly and inviting others to commit to take action.
Please like our Carers Week Facebook page and ask your friends too!
