Carers Week 5-11 June 2023

Published 5th June 2023, in News, News & Updates

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.

We know that carers do an incredible job. Often going unnoticed but the impact they have should never be underestimated.

“A carer is anyone who looks after a family member or friend who has a disability, mental or physical illness, addiction, or who needs extra help as they grow older.”

At Living Options Devon we can offer information and advice to carers of people with a disabilities and long term health conditions.

We work closely with organisations across the South West to help provide signposting to services and support. We also always welcome carers along to our events.

This Carers week we want to say thank you to all the carers – and a reminder that we are here to support whenever we can.
