Carers Week

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. Our 2021 pledges on this page will be replaced during Carers Week 2022.

We are planning a face to face event, ‘Visible Valued & Supported – Tackling Carer Loneliness’, Wednesday 8th June 2022, at St Jude’s Church, Mapperley, Nottingham NG3 5HE 12.30-2.30pm.

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 and technology has become crucial to enable services and teams to remain connected with carers and families. As restrictions have eased, services have needed to adapt the way they now work.
