Carers Week

June 6, 2022 June 12, 2022

Carers Oxfordshire is proud to take part in Carers Week. This is the annual campaign to raise awareness of caring, highlight the challenges unpaid carers face and recognise the contribution they make to families and communities throughout the UK. This year’s theme is:

Make caring Visible, Valued and Supported

Visible – Caring’s impact on all aspects of life from relationships and health to finances and work can be significant. Whilst many feel that caring is one of the most important things they do, its challenges should not be underestimated.
Valued – It is vitally important that we recognise the contribution carers make to their families and local communities, workplaces and society.
Supported – Carers face new challenges every day, but they cannot do this alone. Carers Oxfordshire supports these special people in our society to feel less lonely and more able to cope.
