CARER’S WEEK

7th - 13th June 2021


Carers Week, starting from Monday 7th June, is an annual campaign to raise awareness of caring, highlight the challenges unpaid carers face and 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.


This year’s focus is: Make Caring Visible and Valued.


Skills Launchpad Plymouth have a number of resources in place to help carers across all ages.


The care industry is a worthy, exciting industry to join and be involved with – there are many opportunities to snap up. Job Centre in Plymouth are also running a live event on Twitter on Thurs 10th June from 1pm – 3pm announcing a number of jobs and experiences, including Kickstarter opportunities. Keep an eye out and join the conversation for the latest updates and how you can get involved.
