Carers Week is an annual campaign that aims to raise awareness of caring.
It also helps people who don’t think of themselves as having caring responsibilities to identify as carers and access much-needed support from NEWCIS.
A carer is anyone who cares, unpaid, for a relative, partner or friend who is ill, frail, disabled or has mental health or substance misuse problems.
People are continuing to face new challenges as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic and caring without the right information and support can be tough.
This year Carers Week is being held 7th – 13th June. The theme is ‘Make Caring Visible and Valued’. Many people have taken on more caring responsibilities over the past year as a result of the pandemic.
Here at NEWCIS, we believe that unpaid carers should be recognised and celebrated always – but especially during this special week. They need to be recognised for the difficulties they are experiencing, respected for all they are doing, and provided with information, support and understanding. So during Carers Week, we’re coming together to help Make Caring Visible and Valued.
We’d love for you to join us and celebrate the week at our events which can be found below. Some are virtual and we hope to see some of you in person!
Tips and techniques to help carers find ways to relax and develop self-awareness and mindfulness approaches to daily life. Facilitated by Emma Sims, Holistic Therapist.

Wepre Park walk
Wepre Park is 160 acres of green space in a unique setting. Features include; Old Hall Gardens, Brook and Waterfall, acres of beautiful woodland walks and Ewloe Castle. Join us to explore the area!
Join us to take a leisurely walk around the lake. It is a flat walk with parking facilities. Then why not pop over to the Harbour café for a coffee after? They’ve got benches outside and are doing take away service.
