Careers week festival  6—12 June 2022

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 Sussex Carers Partnership understands how crucial it is to work together and involve unpaid family and friend carers, in the design and delivery of local carers’ support services.

About Making Carers Count

Making Carers Count is led by Carers Trust and delivered in partnership with its network of partners (local carer organisations) and Carers UK. The project will run until March 2024.
