Carers Week is an annual campaign to raise awareness of unpaid carers, the challenges they face and the contribution they make to society. This year it runs from Monday 8th June to Sunday 14th June 2020. The theme for 2020 is “making caring visible”.
Every day we will share with you a thought for the day, a recording of a poem, and other resources that you can look at, listen to or try, and hopefully, enjoy. It’s our small way of saying a big thank you to all the unpaid carers in our community.
To explore our daily posts, please hover your cursor over the “Carers Week 2020” tab in the menu bar above and select a category from the drop down list.
Please also check our events calendar for details of our free online events for carers during Carers Week 2020. You can also download the full programme here. We hope to see you in one of our virtual sessions soon!
We recognise that not all carers will have access to the internet to join us for our programme of online events . If you know a carer in this position who would like to be involved in our Carers Week 2020 activities please get in touch on 0131 665 0135.
We will try to involve everyone we can with the resources we have available to us during the lockdown.
