Carers Week is a UK-wide annual awareness campaign which takes place from Monday 9 to Sunday 15 June 2014. Its aim is to improve the lives of carers and the people they care for.
It does this by raising awareness of carers at a national, regional and local level. Hundreds of organisations and individuals join in each year to make it one of the UK's most successful awareness campaigns.
