Carers Week 10-16th June 2019


Carers Week 10-16th June 2019

June 3, 2019

This year Carers Week will run from 10th-16th June 2019 with a focus on coming together to build communities that support carers to stay healthy and connected. Carers Week is an annual campaign which aims to raise awareness of caring, highlights the challenges carers face and recognises the invaluable contribution they make to families and communities throughout the UK.

The theme of this year’s campaign is getting carers connected in their communities; this can be support to get carers connected to advice and information, services or technology.

The Carers Week team is asking organisations, such as community pharmacies, to support Carers Week as they often have more direct contact with carers than most other services. Community pharmacy teams can also find more information on how they can get involved in supporting carers at

The Carers Week website has a number of resources, which are available to download and print from their website including a Get involved guide which contains ideas and inspiration for activities and events to run through the week. A free materials pack is also available to those who commit on the Carers Week website to running an event or activity during Carers Week.
