Care for the carers

Visible, valued and supported
The theme for Carers Week 2022 is ‘Make caring visible, valued and supported’. We believe that unpaid carers and the challenges of caring should be recognised in all areas of life, caring should be valued and respected by everyone in our society, and carers should have access to the information and support they need, where and when they need it.

What we’ll be focusing on throughout the week

Each day of Carers Week will have a different focus, which you may find useful to plan your activities and communications around.

Monday: launch of Carers Week – and health and social care issues affecting carers

Tuesday: work and employment

Wednesday: visible, valued and supported

Thursday: younger carers

Friday: older carers

Saturday: mental health and wellbeing

Sunday: reflections on Carers Week 2022
