Carers Week 2013 theme announced

Categories: Community Engagement.

Registration is now open for this year’s campaign, which will take place from 10 to 16 June 2013. All registering groups will receive a free welcome pack sponsored by Sainsbury’s. The pack includes information and ideas about what you can do doing the week, as well as posters to promote your events, stickers, flyers and booklets to hand out at events.

The theme ‘Prepared to care?’ will focus on how carers in the UK are coping, how effectively the government is supporting the growing number of carers and whether the wider population is prepared for future caring responsibilities.

Carers Week takes place every year to recognise and celebrate the 6.5 million people throughout the UK providing unpaid care for a family member or friend who is ill, frail or has a disability.
