Carers Week 2013

Carers Week 2013 takes place from Monday 10 to Sunday 16 June 2013.

As preparation for Carers Week, this week, young people on Maple Ward have been making bracelets and keyrings to give out to their own parents, carers or anyone who cares for them. They designed their own logo, “I Care” to decorate their accessories.

Carers Week is a UK-wide annual awareness campaign. Its aim is to improve the lives of carers and the people they care for.

Up and down the UK there are six million people caring unpaid for an ill, frail or disabled family member or friend. These people are called carers but they would probably say “I’m just being a husband, a wife, a mum, a dad, a son, a daughter, a friend or a good neighbour.”
