Carers Week is here! From 8th -14th June we want to raise awareness and help make caring more visible.
The 65,000 unpaid carers of Sheffield have continued to provide essential care and support through the most challenging of circumstances, and we want to celebrate and raise awareness of their vital contribution.
We’ve partnered with Sheffield City Council and Sheffield Young Carers to reach out to carers and the community of Sheffield to help raise awareness of the support available.
The chances are that each and every person already knows an unpaid carer because 1 in 10 people in Sheffield cares for a family member.
We can all help carers.
If you are a professional, for example working in health or social care, or if you are a business owner or an employer, there are many ways in which you can support carers. Click here to find out how.
If you’re a carer yourself, or if you think you might be, you can click here to see all the information about how we can support you.
