What is Carer’s Week?
Carers Week is an annual campaign to raise awareness of caring, highlight the challenges unpaid carers face and to 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. Carers Week takes place each year in June. The theme for Carers Week 2022 is ‘Making Caring Visible, Valued and Supported. ‘As part of Carers Week 2022, the Trust makes an annual pledge. Some services also make their own pledges. See our 2022 pledges on this page.

Nottinghamshire Healthcare’s Carer’s Week Pledge 2022
Previous Nottinghamshire Healthcare Carers Week pledges
In previous years the Trust has made pledges to focus on the national theme of Carers Week. After 2020, our pledges were made during the pandemic. This meant the way we worked with Carers and their families changed in line with restrictions. Many of our face to face meetings became virtual. Technology has become integral to enable services and teams to remain connected with carers and families. As restrictions have eased, services have adapted the way they now work. Some meetings and groups take place in person or they may be a combination of face to face and virtual (online) to suit carers. We’re mindful that not all carers can use or opt to use technology. This can also benefit our services in positive ways helping us to be more responsive.
