Carers Week - help make caring visible

This Carers Week, more than ever before, it's time for us to come together and help Make Caring Visible.

There are 6.5 million people in the UK who are carers, yet they often feel isolated - and they are seven times more likely to say they are lonely than the general population. They will be looking after a family member or friend who has a disability, mental or physical illness, or who needs extra help as they grow older. Many carers feel isolated and that their caring role is hidden.

Everyone has a part to play in making sure these carers are seen, heard, and understood find out  how you can join in
