Carers Week 2021

To celebrate Carers Week, Sheffield Carers Centre, Sheffield Young Carers and Sheffield City Trust have launched two great initiatives for Sheffield Carers

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. There are 6.5 million people in the UK who are carers, by looking after a family member or friend who has a disability, mental or physical illness or who needs extra help as they grow older.

In, addition, there are an estimated 90,000 unpaid carers in Sheffield providing a wide range of help and support to relatives and friends. They need to be recognised for the difficulties they are experiencing, respected for all they doing, and being supported with information and understanding. So for Carers Week, we want to help support Make Caring Visible and Valued.
