Carers Week 2023
This year Carers Week takes place from the 5th – 11th of June. The theme is ‘Recognising and supporting carers in the community.’
Carers Week is an annual campaign run in partnership with key carers charities to raise awareness of and highlight the challenges unpaid carers face. It also aims to recognise the often-hidden contribution they make to society.
Many people still don’t think of themselves as carers. As a result, they don’t identify as having caring responsibilities and seek out or access much-needed support to help them in their caring role.
The focus for 2023 is on ‘recognising and supporting carers in the community’, which is at the very core of what we do at Barnsley Carers Service.
For Carers Week this year, we will be out and about across Barnsley, supporting carers in our community. We are kicking things off with two evening coffee and chat meetings, alongside a host of groups and lunch events throughout the week, before Friday’s big carers event at Barnsley Market on Friday, the 9th of June.
