Carers Week 2019 in Hounslow - 10 to 16 June (posted 3 June)

(Published on 03/06/2019)

 

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 support. You can find out more about Carers Week here.
