Carer’s Week 6 – 12 June
Visible, valued and supported
The theme for Carers Week 2022 is ‘Make caring visible, valued and supported’. We believe that unpaid carers and the challenges of caring should be recognised in all areas of life, caring should be valued and respected by everyone in our society, and carers should have access to the information and support they need, where and when they need it.
To enable the aims of this year’s theme we’ll be out and about across East Kent hosting a series of activities and information points to ensure that we reach as many Carers as possible, existing and new, to offer support and shine a light on all the amazing unsung caring heroes!
