This year, Carers Week takes place on 7-13 June. The week celebrates and recognises the vital contribution made by the UK’s 6.5 million unpaid carers – over 69,000 in East Sussex – who look after a relative, friend or neighbour who couldn’t manage without them.
This year’s focus is ‘Making Caring Visible and Valued’. There are lots of ways you can get involved and show your support. There’s also a range of free events and workshops for carers taking place throughout the week, like information and advice groups, emotional wellbeing groups, walk and talks with coffee, dance lessons, cookery courses and lots more.
