Carers Week 2021 takes place from 7-13 June. Carers Week is a national initiative that highlights the importance of unpaid carers, the challenges that they face and recognition of the contribution that they make to families and their communities. The aim of the campaign this year is to Make Caring Visible and Valued.
If you would like to support unpaid carers, please consider making a pledge. This can just be a sentence or two to state what you or your organisation will do to recognise and support carers. You can pledge your support on the Carers Week website and/or this blank poster and display it at your organisation. You can make or view pledges here.
Many events will be taking place across north central London throughout the week. Here is a summary:
