A Recovery and Respite Plan for Unpaid Carers

Carers Week 2022 comes following an extraordinary two and a half years for unpaid carers, who have faced unprecedented pressures throughout the pandemic. Please join us in calling on the government to develop a Recovery and Respite Plan for unpaid carers, to ensure all carers get the support they need.

What is Carers Week?

Carers Week is an 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. It also helps people who don't think of themselves as having caring responsibilities to identify as carers and access much-needed support.

The campaign is brought to life by thousands of individuals and organisations who come together to provide support for carers, run activities and highlight the vital role carers play in our communities, drawing attention to just how important caring is.
