Carers Week

Home » Newsroom » Carers Week

8-14 June is Carers Week, an annual campaign to raise awareness of caring, highlight the challenges carers face, and recognise the contribution they make to families and communities throughout the UK. We want you to ask your MP to show their support for carers by attending the parliamentary launch event on 8 June.

You may not think of yourself as a carer — perhaps you've looked after someone for a long time without ever calling yourself one, or maybe you think the help you give your spouse or parent is simply what you should be doing. If so, you could be missing out on help that's available to you.

Read our advice for carers to find out your rights, how to get support, and what to do when your caring role changes. See whether you're eligible for financial help through Carer's Allowance, or share this information with someone you think could benefit from it.

If you think you'd benefit from extra help at home but you're unsure how to arrange this, take a look at our video which explains what you need to do.
