Carers Week

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 much-needed support.

Carers Leeds, who provide a service of one-to-one appointments within the University where they offer advice and support, are hosting a weeks’ worth of events which carers are welcome attend to find out more about allowances, support networks, etc., and meet and socialise with other carers.
