Carers Week is 12-18 June 2017.
The theme this year is Building Carer Friendly Communities.
The focus is on building communities which support carers to look after their loved ones well, while recognising that they are individuals with needs of their own.
3 in 4 Carers don't feel their caring role is understood by their community.
This is what we are doing this year for Carers Week:
Monday 12th June – 11am – 2pm – North Tyneside Carers Centre Open Day – Pop in for a coffee and more information about our Adult and Young Carers service
