This year, Carers Week takes place from 7-13 June. Carers Week is a national initiative which highlights the importance of unpaid carers, the challenges that they face and recognition of the contribution that they make to families and their communities. This will be the second year that the Carers Week campaign in Islington will take place online.
Have a look at the full Carers Week Programme.
Ahead of Carers Week – Cakes for Carers
To raise awareness for unpaid carers ahead of National Carers Week, Islington Carers Hub is encouraging the local community to bake ‘Cakes for Carers’, to show appreciation for unpaid carers.
Carers Week – Carers Biographies
Read about the experiences of three Islington carers caring for family members with dementia – the challenges, the rewards and the support that they received in their carers journeys.
Carers Week – Virtual Information Stalls
During Carers Week, we would normally have had a host of organisations come to a launch event at the Islington Town Hall. They would have a stall there with information about the support they provide to Islington residents. This year we invited them to include an outline of their services for our online Information ‘Stalls’.
