Carers Week is a UK-wide annual awareness campaign. During the week the UK’s 6.5 million carers are celebrated and recognised for the contribution they make to those they care for, and to their communities.
Over the years celebrities and politicians have backed the campaign and got involved at a national, regional and local level. In 2013 Lynda Bellingham joined Carers Week to promote carers and supported our activities in Westminster attending a photocall attended by over 100 MPs.

We are always working with celebrities to help us promote the invaluable contribution made by the UK’s carers looking after ill, frail and disabled friends and family members.
Carers Week is also made possible by the support of our sponsors. You can see them all here.
