Carers Week Timetable
Carers Week is an annual event run by Carers UK held during the first week of June (Monday 5 June to Sunday 11 June) to raise awareness and recognise family, friends and neighbours who provide unpaid care and help to someone who cannot cope without support. The week is dedicated to highlighting 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.
Birmingham Carers Hub is a collection of not-for-profit Delivery Partners, managed by Forward Carers, who deliver this service to support Carers who live or provide care to someone living in Birmingham. Our Delivery Partners and Referral Partners have organised a range of events and activities for all kinds of Carers, whether you look after someone with dementia or whether you provide care to a child with a disability. There is a mixture of events that are online, in person, a couple at the weekend, and in the evening so hopefully there will be something that you can join.
Here is a link to what events are taking place throughout the whole of the week. To take a closer look at each day, just click on the timetables below.
