Carers Week is an annual campaign to raise awareness of carers and the contribution they make to society and takes place from the 10th to 16 June. This year’s theme “Getting Carers Connected” highlights the difficulties carer can face staying connected with their families and friends.
At Carers in Bedfordshire we work to help carers feel connected both to their local community and with other carers. To celebrate Carers Week we are running a number of events throughout the county.
We've linked up with Bedford Radio to produce a podcast featuring two local women who share their experiences of caring and the difference that the support from the community has made to them [ link]
