Carers week 2020 runs from the 8th to the 14th June, and this year is focused on making caring visible.
There are 6.5 million people in the UK who are carers, and their role is currently more challenging than ever due to the coronavirus outbreak. Carers can feel isolated at the best of times, and trying to balance work and childcare alongside unpaid care responsibilities is incredibly difficult.
We can all do something to support carers and let them know they are seen and appreciated.
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.
