What is Carers Week?

Carers Week 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 think of themselves as having caring responsibilities to identify as carers and access much-needed support. Caring can be a hugely rewarding yet challenging. Its impact on all aspects of life from relationships and health to finances and work should not be underestimated. Caring without the right information and support can be tough (source).

"Did you know 1 in 8 adults are a carer? This Carers Week why not try and help other carers access support by telling them about NEWCIS?"

What's going on at NEWCIS?

NEWCIS always support and get involved with the campaign. We have lots going on throughout the duration of the week including big events to information stands and drop ins. Take a look at our events calendar (below) for the full agenda.

NEWCIS Carers Week Calendar

Staff from NEWCIS will be out and about around GP surgeries, Sainsburys in Flint (Friday) and our three charity shops (Buckley, Mold and Wrexham) holding information stands all about the services we offer and support available to carers.

Holidays From Home

Our main events, 'Holiday From Home', will provide carers (and cared for) the chance to enjoy a 'break' and experience the taste and entertainment of other countries - without the stress of passport control and flights! You can book on to these by following these links:
