Carers Week is an annual campaign to raise awareness of caring, highlight the challenges that 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.
The theme for Carers Week 2023 is ‘Recognising and supporting carers in the community’. Representatives from NEWCIS will be out and about in the community throughout the week providing information, advice and support.
Whether you are already registered with us or are new to being an unpaid carer, come and speak to us about our tailored support services.
NEWCIS’ Hospital Facilitators work within Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board’s community hospitals. They are there to support unpaid carers when their cared for person is admitted to hospital, to help with the discharge process, and offer support when carers themselves require a hospital admission.
