Carers Week 2018

Monday 11 June will mark the first day of Carers Week 2018, bringing an opportunity for everyone to raise awareness of the different services on offer in Warwickshire to help make carers’ lives a little bit easier. Carers Week is about building communities which support carers to look after their loved ones whilst recognising that they are individuals with health and wellbeing needs of their own.

A carer is anyone who regularly provides unpaid help to someone who could not cope without them. Unfortunately, many people do not realise that they are carers, while many who do realise are unaware that there is support available for them.

Warwickshire County Council, in partnership with Warwickshire Carer Wellbeing Service, will promote Carers Week locally, with themed news and activities taking place throughout the week. View schedule of local events

In addition, a Carers Conference will be held on Friday 15th June. This event, (which has an adult focus but is open to all carers), aims to reach out to carers and share good practice and help support those caring for a loved one in the wider Warwickshire community. Talks and information will be provided from carers, SWFT, Specialist Nurses, WCC and various care/volunteering charities. All members of the community, that are currently caring for someone are invited. Lunch and refreshments will be provided.
