Carers Week – 10th – 16th June

Carers Week (10th – 16th June) is an annual campaign to raise awareness of caring, highlight the challenges unpaid carers face and recognise the contribution they make to families and communities throughout the UK.

It also helps people who don’t see themselves as having caring responsibilities to identify as carers and access much-needed support.

This year’s theme is Putting Carers on the Map.’

Tessa Barrett attended the Devon Carers 'Carer Friendly Conference' and said "It was a brilliant event bringing together multiple organisations to better understand the impact of beiing a carer."

Devon Carers has been supporting the many unpaid carers for 25 years!

Many of our clients have friends and family that support them, that do not recognise themselves as unpaid carers!

If you are unsure contact Devon Carers Helpline on 03456 434 435 to find out and access the much-needed support.

Their Helpline is available Monday to Fridays from 8am – 6pm and on Saturday 9am – 1pm. They are closed on Sundays and bank holidays.
