Imago Carers Week

Carers Week is an annual campaign to raise awareness of caring, highlight unpaid carers’ challenges, and recognise their contribution to families and communities throughout the UK. It’s not just for those who identify as carers but also for individuals who may not yet recognise their caring responsibilities, including Young Carers.

This year’s theme, ‘Putting Carers on the Map,’ is not just a title but a crucial initiative. By making caring more visible, we aim to create a community where carers feel seen and respected and can access the services and support they need. Please see flyer below for more information.
