This year, Carers week runs from Monday 8th June to Sunday 14th June 2020.
Carers week is run by Carers UK, who each year work together with five other national charities. This year they are asking that local communities, individuals, and organisations to join them in “Making Caring Visible”.
The five charities involved this year are, Age UK, Carers Trust, Motor Neuron Disease Association, Oxfam GB, and Rethink Mental Illness.
Caring can be hugely rewarding, but often carers contribution to society is not recognised and celebrated and can be tough without the right information and support.
Research has showed through Carers Week that 4.5 million additional people are caring for older, disabled or seriously ill relatives since the Covid-19 pandemic which shows how everyone has come together during this stressful time.
Here at AMD Care we think this a great campaign as we know first-hand the effort and time that our carers put into caring for our clients and the appreciation and recognition that they all deserve.
