Carers Week is supported and sponsored by many organisations, charitable and otherwise, including Carers UK, Age UK, Independent Age, Carers Trust, Macmillan Cancer Support and Sainsbury’s.
This year the focus of the campaign is to help build Carer Friendly Communities where carers will feel supported to look after their family or friends, and are recognised as individuals with needs of their own.
Julie McLellan, director of Bluebird Care North Tyneside, said:
“We are proud to promote Carers Week to help raise awareness of the unpaid carers in our community and to help highlight the challenges that they face day in, day out. We hope that supporting this campaign will provide help to those caring in our local area, and make them aware of the support that is available to them.”
