8th - 14th June
Unpaid carers are currently dealing with more challenges than ever before due to the coronavirus pandemic. It is, therefore, more important to highlight and recognise these caring roles during Carers Week and beyond.
This years theme is ‘Making Carers Visible’. There is an army of 6.5 million carers in the UK, yet they often feel isolated and are more likely to feel lonely than the general population. Here at NEWCIS, we pride ourselves on building a sense of community and social activities for carers with our regular carer groups and drop ins. In fact, one of our charities objectives is to ‘ensure carers are recognised and valued’. Learn more about our objectives here.

This years Carers Week will be ran entirely virtually so make sure you’re following us!
