It’s Carers Week!

Carers Week, 6th – 12th June 2022, Making Caring Visible, Valued and Supported

Our pledge to you: This Carers Week we’re celebrating the amazing carers in East Sussex, thanking them for everything they do, and holding events where carers can connect with each other and unwind.

This 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, Valued and Supported’, and we’re asking carers and the community to come together to make caring visible and valued throughout the week. Carers and their friends and family, partner organisations and local businesses can all get involved to recognise and celebrate carers, and show support.

As a community it is important that we help identify carers so that they can access information and support. Three in 5 of us will become a carer at some point in our lives. It can happen at any time and to anyone, and it has a huge impact on a person’s life. Find out more about what carers do here.

You can find out more about everything planned for the week and how you can support, on our dedicated webpage here.
