Carers Week is an annual campaign which aims to raise awareness of caring, the challenges that carers face, and the contribution that they make to communities and individuals across the UK.
Independent Age is a proud supporter of Carers Week and, this year, will be supporting the theme of raising the importance of building carer friendly communities. Our pledge for Carers Week 2016 is below:
Our pledge is to make a difference to carers. As part of our commitment to building carer friendly communities, we pledge to reach carers by providing free, clear and impartial information and advice on the issues that matter through our free Helpline (0800 319 6789), our free guides and factsheets, and our commitment to campaigning. A charity founded over 150 years ago, we're independent so you can be.
