Carers Week 2023

Published: 5 June 2023

Carers Week runs from Monday (5 June) to Sunday (11 June), shining a spotlight on caring, highlighting the challenges family and friend carers face, and acknowledging the huge contribution they make.

The theme is recognising and supporting carers in the community. It’s a good opportunity to help people who don’t think of themselves as carers, to identify as carers so they can access much-needed support.

Meanwhile, last week, Carers UK – the leading national charity for unpaid carers – announced that the Carer’s Leave Bill has gained Royal Assent and is now the Carer’s Leave Act 2023.
