Carers Week 2017 will take place from Monday 12 to Sunday 18 June 2017. We’re continuing our focus on building Carer Friendly Communities, which support carers to look after their loved ones well, while recognising that they are individuals with needs of their own.
The campaign is brought to life by the individuals and organisations who come together to organise activities and events throughout the UK, drawing attention to just how important caring is.

The Carers Week Carers Checklist sets out practical steps every part of the community can take to be carer friendly – to help you feel supported as a carer and recognised as an individual with needs of your own.
